About the NSBE Jr. Program
The District-Wide NSBE Jr. Program features a 2-hour event occuring one Saturday each month. The 2-hour time block is divided into two main programs:
STEM/Academic Enrichment (up to 1 hour)
Each hands-on STEM activity is focused on a different branch of engineering and features an engaging project.
Career/Character/College Preparedness (3 C’s) and Leadership (up to 1 hour)
Students will be exposed to personal and professional development with NSBE’s unique leadership model
In lieu of the ongoing novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Atlanta District-Wide NSBE Jr. Program will be completely virtual for the safety of our students, parent, and volunteers. This also includes our decision to not participate in the STEM competitions for the 2020-2021 academic year
