The DMV NSBE, Jr. Chapter is a Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) which is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, or STEM. The goal is to encourage students in grades K–12 to attend college and pursue technical degrees. Students are exposed to engineering through a year-round STEM program that includes competitions in robotics, wind turbine energy challenges, math and designing cities of the future.
Math is the basis of all things STEM. Without math proficiency students will have difficulty being successful in engineering, medicine & other STEM related endeavors. DMV NSBE, Jr. Chapter’s PCI program will provide activities to help students discover first-hand how math, engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover the excitement of academic excellence, leadership, technical development and teamwork.

Although she's one of Chapter Advisors & a coach to her daughter's First Lego League (FLL) Robotics Team, Dr. Aprille Ericsson is a talented Aerospace Engineer with NASA Goddard Space Center in Greenbelt, MD.
Before making the Highest of the Seven Hills his new home and choosing
Florida A&M University over schools like Harvard, Yale, UC Berkely, UChicago, and amazing HBCU's like Howard, NCAT, Morehouse and Hampton Universities, Curtis Lawrence, III served as DMV NSBE, Jr's Chapter President and was an active member of NSBE, Jr for ten years.
As President of our NSBE, Jr Chapter, Curtis worked with the chapter advisors to organize STEM Outreach with local elementary, middle and highschools and annual college trips while leading his VEX Robotics Team to advance to the VEX Worlds Championships. Dual-enrolled full-time in the George Washington University Early College Program, Curtis' love for STEM transferred through his peer mentoring efforts and encouraging 5-11th graders to consider a career in a STEM field through early college prep exposure.

Meet Noah Yared, son of DMV NSBE, Jr. Chapter Advisor, Sehine Gizaw. Noah is currently an Aerospace Engineering, Freshman at CalTech University and alumni of School Without Walls HS, in DC -
Class of 2018.
As a senior at Walls, Noah was extensively involved in STEM, having joined and gained leadership positions in nearly all the STEM clubs at Walls. Noah’s passion for STEM exceeded the walls of HS, with him taking classes with university students at George Washington University (GWU) while concurrently working with professors as a research assistant at the university’s transportation engineering lab to help develop intelligent driverless cars. His extensive involvement and avid work in STEM allowed him to hold several engineering internships at Yale University, As a QuestBridge Scholar, Noah received approximately $300,000 in scholarship to attend California Institute of Technology - Caltech, the 3rd highest ranked university in the world after Oxford and Cambridge.
Before heading off to CalTech, Noah was dedicated to helping our Chapter President start DMV NSBE, Jr.
