SHPE-UIC – SHPEKids
November 15, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
SHPE- UIC’s started a new program called SHPEKids. Daisy Cueto is leading this STEM effort to increase sustainability in events like Noche de Ciencias and to increase STEM and higher education awareness to younger students. SHPEKids focuses on reaching out to middle school students and get kids involved in STEM at an earlier age.
The first successful SHPEKids event was on September 27. Sixty-eighth grade students from James Hedges Elementary school attended the UIC’s campus. During this day-long event, Hedges went on campus tours, participated in STEM activities, and watched robotic demos. Hedges was also the largest participating school at Noche de Ciencias as this was their second SHPEKids event. Two more events are programmed in the spring semester for the SHPEKids chapter!
