Opportunity to meet Flag Officers from the NAVY at their Stars & Stripes Reception

The U.S. Department of the NAVY hosted and invited our members to attend the Stars & Strips reception held during the Black Engineers Awards Conference on February 18, 2011.  The NAVY (Flag Officers) had round-table discussions with the students based on their interest in a career in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM).  

On Saturday, February 19th, the Patriots attended the conference where hundreds of organizations were available to help our youth focus on the importance of STEM related fields in an effort to develop the necessary leadership skills to be successful in their future career goals.

Area Students Competed in the Annual Biomedical Competition

It was check-up time for the Patriots on February 7, 2011! The U.S. National Institutes of Health and four of their institutes, National Library of Medicine, NIH Office of Communications and Public Liaison, NIH Office of Science Education, and National Human Genome Research Institute, sponsored the Patriots 2nd Annual Biomedical Competition.  Their goal was to encourage students to further their interest in various medical fields. 

We had students from Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC participating in the competition, and 10 medical professionals to serve as judges.  We also had 10 future doctors from Georgetown University Medical Center to give our guests a pre-doctor check up.  Each team was required to present a five-page research paper, brochure, slide show presentation, one-page web site, display board, and an oral presentation on one of the pre-selected medical careers.
