If you didn’t come out tonight, you missed out on some trivia! AirBnB not only stopped by to talk about their job opportunities and application processes, but we got to learn fun trivia facts on the company itself!
The SHPE 2018 Conference in Cleveland, Ohio was a success! We had the opportunity to network with employers and meet fellow SHPE members from all over the country!
Above are a handful of pictures that captured the unforgettable memories of la familia at the convention! #SHPE2018

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!
