Update: Noche de Ciencias @ Jacobs Center

Noches de Ciencias (Family Science Night) is a national initiative from SHPE to promote knowledge and interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The goal of Noches de Ciencias is to inform K-12 students and their families about STEM education and college options through FREE interactive workshops and activities. Noche de Ciencias es un evento GRATIS y reconocido a nivel nacional que sirve para involucrar a la comunidad hispana en un ambiente divertido y relajado con actividades científicas y de ingeniería, y para promover el conocimiento de la universidad en un entorno bilingüe. El objetivo de la Noche de Ciencias es facilitar el acceso y el conocimiento de carreras en STEM (Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas) con el fin de ampliar la participación de los hispanos a lo largo de todos los segmentos de la vía de la ciencia y la ingeniería.

FBI Honors Internship Program 2014 Opportunity

SHPE Students,
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering internships and has reached out to SHPE San Diego to share the word with our student members! Don’t think you’ll make the cut? Here’s what the FBI’s has to say about SHPE members:

The FBI values diversity and SHPE members come with a great education, cultural knowledge and sometimes with the foreign language ability (Spanish).

This internship program has a very short deadline attached to the application (February 4th) but this great opportunity is worth a serious consideration. Click here to review the FBI Honors Internship Program details.
