A walk for Education

Starting at 11, there will be tabling and various booths for activities until 12:30pm. From 12:30 until 2, there will be games and recreation. Finally, food will be served by 2 until the conclusion of the program at 3.

Simple Audio Equalizer Manufacturing Made Easy with NSBE

During this event, students will be put into groups of two-three students in making a simple audio equalizer while being instructed by Junior. During this process, students will be able to utilize simple materials to make something that can be a great application to life since many students listen to audio on their laptops, television, cell phones, etc. They will be able to more feasibly change the sound settings to be able to listen to sounds how they want to.

Game of Zones: Bowling Social

The purpose of this event is to re-kindle the fire of why it is of the students best interest to join UF NSBE. Throughout this event we will have a layback event that will also be competitive through bowling. We also hope to make sure that this event will be relaxing as we go into the next event, A Walk for Education.

PCI Shadow Day

During this event, students will adequately expose high school students to STEM and the University of Florida within in the time allotted for the event. The purpose of this event is to inform students of multiple STEM topics through discussion and activity, as well as showing them highlights of the campus here at UF. The expected outcome: Hopefully, the students will walk away with a stronger, more informed desire to attend college and choose a STEM major, additionally they will gain a first-hand perspective for the campus of UF.

Mini Conference

During Mini Conference, students will be exposed to what will be happening at FRC and how to approach companies there. They will learn how to approach companies through learning how to make elevator speeches, interviewing strategies and resume critiquing. There will be a presentation from the CRC as well as experienced students to help out if anyone was feeling nervous about this process.
