This year’s Professional Chapter Banquet held on May 3rd was a great success! Part of what made the banquet a success were the videos presented during the banquet. We’ve uploaded the videos prepared by the professional and student chapters to share with those who weren’t able to attend. You can view all the videos we have uploaded to YouTube on our channel and they are also linked below.

Unfortunately the SDSU chapter video cannot be uploaded due to missing photo release forms.

In the 2012 fall semester, the San Diego City College (SDCC) SHPE Chapter worked together with Pazzaz, a non-profit organization with the goal of academically assisting elementary to middle school students. During monthly visits, SHPE members provided a series of hands-on experiments to introduce Pazzaz students to the exciting world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). In November, SHPE members used a “dry-ice bubble” experiment to have the students experience a chemical reaction. In December, SHPE members created a lava lamp by combining water with food coloring and baby oil. With this experiment students could appreciate the chemical property that does not allow water and oil to mix.

SDCC SHPE will continue working with Pazzaz during the 2013 spring semester. Volunteers and sponsors for SDCC SHPE activities are always welcome. For more information, please contact the SHPE City College Chapter at [email protected].
