**Each competition team will have a minimum of 2 parent-coaches & 1-2 team parents.
Many children in the DC Metro Area love STEM but may not want to be an engineer (or even know what engineers do). For this reason, DMV NSBE, Jr. will offer a variety of STEM programming & other enrichment classes to our members. To ensure that our members can participate in any of our chapter's programming AND outside extra-curricular activities; weekly team practices, enrichment classes, workshops and monthly chapter meetings will occur on the weekends:
Chapter Meetings: 3rd Sunday of Each Month (4pm-6pm)
Our student-led chapter meetings are hands-on and intended for BOTH the student members AND their parents.
Scheduling our programs on Saturday's & Sunday's gives students, parents & coaches the flexibility to have an enriching NSBE, Jr. experience while also giving them time to spend with family & nurture their non-STEM interests.
**2019-20 chapter schedule is available in the Member's Only section of our website; however teams & enrichment classes occur every Saturday (and most Sunday's); determined by the coaches/mentors & enrichment instructors.
Schedules for team practices & enrichment classes will be determined by the dedicated volunteer coaches & mentors serving our children. From our experiences, the most successful NSBE, Jr. chapters also have a high percentage of parent-coaches who have children in the chapter. DMV NSBE, Jr is a FUBU (For Us, By Us) organization, not a drop-off organization. Parents are expected to be involved AND engaged on their child's team and in the chapter for it's ultimate success. We hope you consider serving as a co-coach or team parent for one of your child's math or technical teams.
Besides exploring engineering together & having fun guiding your child (& their teammates) in exciting hands-on STEM adventures - YOU, your co-coach and the parents on your child's team get to contribute input on the practice meeting schedule! Ex: Will our VEX IQ team practice on Saturday's from 1pm-2:30pm or Sunday's 2pm-3:30pm. Does this time work well for everyone on our team? Does it conflict with my son's football & karate schedule? Will my daughter be able to do Future City, Mandarin, a coding class and also gymnastics with her travelling club program?
DMV NSBE, Jr is a FUBU (For US, By US) organization. Our parent volunteers are the reason for the success of our organization and are expected to be involved & engaged. DMV NSBE, Jr is NOT a drop-off organization. With the exception of some of our enrichment classes, the majority of our competition teams are led by volunteer parent coaches & team parents with support from Howard University & George Washington University mentors and STEM professionals.
