Noche De Ciencias: We had the honor of hosting a Noche de Ciencias event (Night of Science) was held in Parkland Middle School on January 15th. We were able to reach out to a younger demographic of students that allowed us to inspire a carrer in STEM from an early start through fun and interactive activities. We had amazing speakers and representatives from SHPE-UMD, SHPE-DC, and UMD’s recruitment department helping to introduce the parents to the resources available to them and their students. This is all done in an effort to increase awareness and enthusiasm that students have towards the STEM fields. In addition, we SHPE-Jr. Committee is now beginning to start a SHPE Jr. right here at Parkland Middle!
We bring companies to you. Guest speakers from companies like Microsoft, There are many opportunities for members to participate with professional companies in workshops, events, and informational meetings. These discussions and lectures from various companies will allow members to develop their professional abilities and skills while also hearing suggestions from respected professionals about interview techniques, resume practices, and dressing professionally at career fairs.
SHPE National Conference: The 2017 National SHPE Conference was held in Kansas City, MO and we had the pleasure of sending 19 of our members to the conference. We had enormous help from the Dean of Engineering, Daryl Pines, and much financial support from UMD’s departments of Engineering most notably the Mechanical Engineering Department. We had our President Keyanna Franklin receive a full-time job offer from Accenture and many other members receive internship opportuntites from this event.
