This year, A Walk For Education will consist of three parts: A Stem Fair, a Ceremony, and a STEM Activity session!
The STEM Fair will have tabling UCF-STEM organizations, such as National Society of Black Engineers and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, & companies, such as Jacobs & Stantec. We want to offer advice and guidence to K-12 students that want to pursue STEM.
The ceremony will be a breif summary of the event, with the topic of pursuing your potential!
The activity session will be filled with fun STEM activities for children of all ages. Students will be divided by grade. Parent or guardian should be in vicinity for student to participate in activities.
Date: Saturday, February 25th, 2023
Location: Dr. James R. Smith Neighborhood Center
Join NSBE- UCF to increase the awareness of the opportunities available through education particularly in the STEM fields aiming towards African Americans and to ignite a desire for minority students to join STEM and know about the resources available to them to help further their education.
For this section of our event, students and attendees will leave the center in groups and go on a journey around the Dr. James R. Smith Neighborhood Center. The groups will be learning about the African American Alumni that contributed and the drive that got them to be where they are now. This UCF tour will raise awareness that “STEM is for all” and that “No one Should Be Excluded”
The goal at the end of the walk is that students will have acquired all the necessary information and they will be equipped with the resources to help them further their education.
All are welcome to participate!
