East Bay NSBE collaborative partnerships with schools and Corporations in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, provide robust numeracy and literacy focused STEM Initiatives for 3rd-12th grade scholars and their families. We utilize technology as a platform for our STEM Initiatives, that incorporate Khan Academy, to target underserved, underrepresented, rising and low-income 3rd -12th grade students. We move the needle for these scholars with our Programs, addressing the unmet need that presents as access to STEM Programs. East Bay NSBE provides Saturday Programs , and after school extracurricular science, technology, engineering, mathematics and robotics programs. Scholars will access resources that are designed to increase their numeracy and literacy through the social emotional affects of robotics’ team building by working to solve real-world tasks using the engineering process and critical thinking skills to document the activities. Successful collaboration with youth-serving organizations and partners, the past 14 years, speak to the numeracy and literacy outcomes we are committed to achieving with technology provide scholars experiences that incorporate 21st Century skills to become competitive in global society.
Giving students the engineering skills that matter.
Our mission is to aid in the development of our students’ STEM skills by exposing them to real engineering scenarios. Our team of volunteers works to identify a STEM based curriculum as well as innovative technology for students to engage, learn, and explore with, giving them the edge to pursue future life endeavors.
Developed by the University of California at Berkeley, this curriculum teaches introductory concepts to basic computer programming fundamentals. Students are able to conceptualize a computer problem and build programs to solve it using SNAP.
FPV Drone Racing Team
The DroneGP program seeks to teach students (ages 6th grade to 12th grade) the skills necessary for a future in engineering. Students forge a team and collaboratively work together to build a first person view racing drone, which they will optimize to compete in official time trials.
The STEM program educates our students on a range of topics within the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. Each session is taught by our professional volunteers, with the goal of inspiring our students to consider areas within STEM they may want to pursue.
