PCI Conference Chair Welcome

Join us at NSBE49!

Greetings, future engineers!

I am Chika L. Okwor, a senior with a double major in Civil Engineering and Mathematics at Prairie View A&M University. I have the pleasure of serving as the 49th Annual Convention Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Conference Chair. I’m excited to welcome you to the 49th Annual Convention in Kansas City, Missouri, hosted in Region V! It’s my honor to bring NSBE Jr. students, chaperones, and advisors an experience that will light the passion for STEM to make sure our students “Excel Academically”.

This year’s theme, I AM S.T.E.M., is about discovering who you are and opening your eyes to the endless possibilities available. You will have the opportunity to display your talents in various competitions across all age groups, showcase your innovation, and share your knowledge with your peers and professionals. In addition, our workshop tracks, I Am the Next Generation, and I Am Managing Wellness, center cross-generational engagement and collaboration, creative approaches to shape the future of STEM, and the resources to support all aspects of mental health.

The Convention Planning Committee is beyond excited to bring you a life-changing, inspiring and eye-opening experience in Kansas City. You can contact me at cpcpci@nsbe.org with any questions or concerns, check out our website www.convention.nsbe.org and follow our social media for all news and information leading up to the Convention!
