Bee Workshops

NSF conducts Spelling, Vocabulary, Math, Science and Geography Bee workshops. NSF conducts two types of Bee Workshops: Online Workshops and Onsite Workshops. The Bee Workshops are designed to encourage and prepare children to take part in NSF contests and other similar competitions. The workshop includes a review of the contest rules, tips to prepare for the competitions, fun exercises, mock bee, and more. This is a parent-child event and includes a booklet or study guide. The workshops provide the following benefits:

  • Improves learning
  • Enables chidren to gain confidence, get rid of phobia, fear or anxiety of the contest
  • Gives a thorough understanding of the basics
  • Learn how the NSF contests are organized
  • Get to know what to study (study material)
  • Both the child and parent get more comfortable and get tuned in
  • Strengthening the NSF family
Online Workshops

Online workshops are conducted by talented coaches such as Kavya Shivashankar (2009 Scripps National Spelling champion), Stuti Mishra (2012 Scripps National Spelling runner up), and Vanya Shivashankar (2015 Scripps National Spelling champion). These workshops are meant for both the Junior and Senior levels. Since this workshop is online, you can be anywhere as long as you have a desktop/laptop with high speed Internet connection and a headphone. Parents can also join with their child but must use only one connection to the online session.

NSF will be conducting two online workshops each for Spelling and Geography. Pick any session that is convenient for you. You will receive workshop material by mail before the workshop.

The following is the schedule for 2016:
