This past Saturday, our NSBE scholars attended the NSBE Region 6 Fall Regional Conference. The entire day was jam packed with lots of workshops, competitions, and activities. More importantly, our scholars got to witness the vastness of the NSBE organization. Hundreds of elementary, middle, and high school scholars joined with collegiate and professional members in the conference theme: Ignite. Imagine. Innovate.
Our scholars even participated in two of the Pre-Collegiate Initiative competitions: the Science Bowl Olympiad and Math Counts. In the Science Bowl Olympiad, we had scholars on all three of the top teams, and in Math Counts, our scholars took 1st and 3rd place!!! Here are some pictures from our FRC exeperience.
This year, the NSBE Region 6 Fall Conference is here in Southern California!!!
This is an exciting and wonderful opportunity for our scholars because the Fall Regional Conference is jam-packed with programming designed specifically for our elementary and middle school children. There will be workshops on coding, robotics, tower design, catapulting, prosthetics, 3-D printing, and aircraft design, plus the Science Bowl Olympiad and the Closing Session Banquet. Also, one of the best parts of the conference will be exposing our scholars to the scale of the NSBE organization…they will get to socialize with other NSBE students from throughout Region. So, here are the logistics…
Included in the registration fee: admission to the conference; breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the conference; transportation to the conference; and t-shirts (exclusively for our NSBE Jr. of Southern California scholars). The NSBE Jr. of Southern California chapter will also host a hospitality suite to give our scholars and parents a place to rest and to get a healthy snack during the long day. We wil leave at 8am and return at 9:30pm (after the banquet). Since we are having such a busy Saturday, we will be cancelling our regularly scheduled NSBE meeting on Sunday, November 19th.
