Ten80 2017 NSBE STEM League Finals

Posted April 13, 2017 by Toni Cerbo

A capacity crowd of 42 teams competed at the Ten80 NSBE STEM League Finals at the 43rd Annual National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Convention. Some teams made their first appearance while others returned as seasoned challengers. All teams demonstrated their innovative skills!

Over the two-day event, teams packed the Ballroom with Data-Driven Design boards and creative logos while optimized race cars zoomed around the race course, oval course and drag strip. Students and their adult mentors worked hard throughout the year to earn their spot at the starting line. Everyone had fun, met up with old friends and even made some new ones. Family and friends cheered them on from the sidelines as everyone shared in this amazing and inspiring experience!

Students came ready to compete and take their ideas to the next level. Teams pushed the volunteer Presentation Judges to their limits with 8-minute marketing presentations and Data-Driven Design interviews. The judges, and students, loved every minute. All teams truly showcased the 21st Century Skills students cultivate as part of the National STEM League.

 

  

Thanks to HNTB for volunteering four valued professionals who spent two full days with us as judges. These professionals generously gave their time to not only decide the winners, but provide constructive feedback and networking opportunities to the competitors.

Thanks also to Kansas City Speedway for donating the bleachers that offered so much comfort throughout.

Our team looks forward to seeing many of you at National STEM League Finals at RPI in Troy, NY on April 29th and 30th.

And the winners are … drum roll please …
