Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK)


SEEK's mission is to increase elementary school students’ aptitude in math and science and their interest in pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) career fields, by having them engage in interactive, team-based engineering projects.

Private donations account for most of the programs' funding. SEEK is a free, three-week day camp for students in grades 3-8. Our most supportive partners include the following organizations and companies: Battelle Foundation, GE, Motorola, Pitney Bowes, Google, Cisco, Caterpillar, S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, Clorox, INTEL, US Coast Guard, MeadWestvaco, Office of Naval Research, Cummins, M&T Bank, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas and Electric, San Diego State, NRG Energy, and CalPine.

The SEEK program will be led by NSBE members — black engineering students and technical professionals dedicated to pursuing and fulfilling the NSBE mission.
SEEK mentors are trained by Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) representatives and Dr. Grace Carroll of Carroll Consulting, Grades + Game.

The NSBE Pre-College Initiative (PCI) team developed the SEEK camp experience using a framework based on SAE International’s “A World in Motion,” an interactive, standards-based curriculum emphasizing student motivation, mentoring, cultural connection and parental involvement.

SEEK participants will:

  • Learn how to learn (identify different ways to study and capture notes)
  • Have a NSBE member as a mentor for the duration of the camp
  • Gain greater knowledge of past and present engineering giants
  • Develop better written and oral communication skills, as well as better presentation skills
  • Develop a more positive self-image
  • Be exposed to positive images of engineers
