Event description

Description

Overview

The TORCH Festival is a “reverse” science fair; instead of the traditional science fair where students present their discoveries to judges, we as the experts in the field will present our knowledge and demonstrations to youth to encourage them to consider entering a STEM field. This will present a mixture of booths with demonstrations and explanations and interactive activities for students to walk through in groups.

Some Booths to expect:

Ask an Engineer, PCI in NSBE, Snap Circuits, Lego Man, Battle of the Bottles, Bob the Builder: Spaghetti Towers, Sid the Kid: Slime Creation, STEM Studio, & ART.

Audience

This event is being hosted to bring youth from the surrounding area of Parsippany, N.J to the conference site for an afternoon. At the conference, this event is not a workshop for registered PCI to attend, but a free event for the community.

Age Group: Elementary and Middle School

**A chaperone can accompany up to 5 attendees, and every attendee MUST have a chaperone who will stay with them for the duration of the afternoon.

For any questions or concerns, contact r1pci@nsbe.org.

The TORCH Festival is a joint effort by PCI and TORCH.

The Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, or STEM for K–12th graders. The PCI program provides activities, workshops, competitions, and events to help students discover the different fields in engineering and other technical majors, while also developing professional and leadership skills.

The National Society of Black Engineers’ Pre-College Initiative program’s goal is to enhance the pre-college students' Academic, Technical, and Leadership skills, so they can have what they need tap into their potential and reach for greatness.

Technical Outreach and Community Help (T.O.R.C.H) is one of NSBE’s signature programs. It is NSBE’s community service initiative with the aim of using our technical backgrounds to positively impact the community.
TORCH connects the existing NSBE community with potential members and the community NSBE seeks to impact positively. Torch focuses on outreach and community service to bridge the gap between members and non-members to ensure NSBE stays connected to the people it aims to empower.
