DMV NSBE, Jr. Advisors

Volunteering their time, we are blessed to have seven advisors (aka "Seven Women Who Rock") who have a love of STEM Education, believe in NSBE’s mission and know the importance of early STEM exposure in order to change the face of STEM for the future.  The positive & transformative impact on children from under-represented communities who receive quality mentoring by STEM Professionals of Color is immeasurable.  Together we will work to help fulfill NSBE’s mission while also ensuring your child has fun, loving science & math!
