Why:                Join the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and SAE International as the inaugural session of the Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK) camp closes with an important announcement.

The free, three-week camp focused on elementary school students' experience in math and science to create early interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Watch as the campers test the performance of a variety of crafts they’ve designed and constructed themselves. The challenge is to design a fleet of toy vehicles that meet a range of performance criteria including speed, travel distance and maneuverability.

NSBE created SEEK to emphasize STEM fundamentals by employing SAE
International’s award-winning A World in Motion curriculum.  The Battelle Foundation, Caterpillar, Inc., the U.S. Navy, Friendship Public Charter School , Howard University, and the Center for Youth and Family Investment contributed greatly to this pilot program.
