Exciting NSBE Results

This past week the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) program took students to the National Convention in Boston, MA to compete in seven different competitions (First Lego League, High and Middle School Math, Kidwind Wind Tunnel, TEN80 Race Car Challenge, Science Fair, Vex Robotics).  There were over 11, 000 attendees at the conference and over 2,000 PCI students (Grades 3-12).

SCSD students took first place in the Kidwind Wind Tunnel competition; team members are Jaleel Berry and Jevon Jones from Nottingham and Tyriek Mayo and Nazir Muhammed from ITC.  SCSD students placed third in the High School Math Lower Division; team members are Myles Cherebin from Nottingham, Chantay Morales from PSLA, Alex Phan from ITC, and Andru Skinkle and Imari Gary, P-Tech.

The Kidwind team, because of its win on that platform, has been selected to compete at the National/International Competition in New Orleans, LA, May 21st-25th.   Congratulations!
