East Bay NSBE Jr. is an incubator for K-12 students who are mentored by professional engineers and engineering college students. We utilize computer technology to teach math, electrical engineering, computer science, physics, drone robotics and hands-on science projects to develop STEM skills and explore careers in one of the STEM disciplines. Our students enter competitions and science fairs at the end of each semester of instruction from technical professionals from local businesses in our community.
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.
