Mid-Year Report FY 2014-2015

We are very happy to present the first SHPE San Diego Mid-Year Report. Along with this report we continue to share our success stories through social media, quarterly newsletters and our website.

Since SHPE San Diego’s establishment in 1982, the chapter has grown to be one of Region 2’s strongest professional chapters and has reached many milestones including the establishment of our 501 (c) (3) non-profit status in 1994, earning chapter of the year for region 2 in 2004, the commitment of our 17 Lifetime members, and providing over $20,000 in scholarships this past fiscal year.

Please read on to learn about the good we've accomplished in the first half of our 2014-2015 fiscal year. This has only been possible with the support of our Membership, Sponsors and Employee Resource Group partners!

We've inspired over 600 students & parents to pursue STEM fields!

Our two recent Noche de Ciencias events, a SHPE National initiative, inspired over 100 middle and high school students to pursue a STEM degree while also  educating over 65 parents on the benefits of a STEM career and the affordability of sending their children to college!

Sabado Cientifico is SHPE San Diego’s own initiative to expose elementary school students to STEM fields and Latino role models that will inspire them! Our pilot program engaged 30 students and educated 25 parents in the similar fashion as our Noche de Ciencias!

The following are some highlights from our STEM Outreach events!

SHPE Jr. Chapters

The SHPE Jr. Chapter program is a SHPE National initiative run by SHPE Foundation to support K-12 students in overcoming persistent educational barriers and to encourage those students to pursue STEM studies and careers. SHPE San Diego, with the support of sponsoring companies, is steadily growing the number of SHPE Jr. Chapters in San Diego. We are currently in the process of establishing a new Jr. chapter at Sweetwater High School!

We Need Your Help to Execute the Rest of Our Programs for the Year!

As SHPE San Diego continues to grow, our financial need also grows. Our scholarship program is coming up and with more student chapters we are aiming to raise over $25,000 to award in scholarships! We also have several STEM Outreach events planned as well as a couple major Professional Development events!
It's through the generous donations from Corporations and Members like you that we are able to meet these growing needs. Please consider helping us reach our goal of raising $30,000 for our Scholarship, Outreach, and Professional Development programs!
