NFB Engineering Quotient (EQ) Program
June 21-27, 2020
St. Paul, Minnesota

“NFB EQ gave me more confidence to keep doing what I want—no one can stop me! The program opened my eyes to even more options in the field [of engineering] and it gave me some confidence that I can do some mechanical stuff that I didn’t think I could do before.” – Michael, Texas
