  •     We like to enter teams in the annual Try-Math-A-Lon, Teen Engineering Design Science Fair Math Count, and Kid Zone competitions.
        It's a  great opportunity for students who are good in math and science and want to test their skills.

  •     There are three  NSBE's Conference each year that the Junior members are eligible to attend.  The National Conference is a great
         learning opportunity and the best chance to meet black engineering professionals.  There are also Summer and Fall conferences.

  •      Each year we attend the Black Engineer of the Year Award Conference. Next year the conference will be in Bethesda, MD, where
         the students can meet professional engineers and learn more about engineering careers.

Students joining the Patro-Tech Science Club receive a complimentary membership to the Patriots National Society of  Black Engineering, Jr. Chapter.  Students from 4th - 12th grade is eligible to compete in NSBE's STEM programs and competitions.  Patriots have been one of the largest NSBE's Junior Chapter.  The chapter offers important advantages for future engineers and scientists. 

There are monthly workshop meetings with guest presenters, competitions, out-of-town conference, college fairs, and a Lego and Robotics team.  In general, the program is college-oriented, helping students to understand what different science and technology field involve, to plan for college and careers in one of these fields, and to get excited about the possibilities. As a member, students received a bi-annual magazine called NSBE's BRIDGE.  The Bridge magazine will have information on SAT/ACT, college admission, preparation assistance, scholarships, science fair, mentoring, and tutoring.
