Earlier this year SHPE FIU established SHPE Jr chapter for the first time in a long time. Not only did they establish one but two SHPE Jr chapters with a third chapter in the works. All of these chapters are thanks to the continued efforts of SHPE FIU’s very own Edward Gomez. Edward has worked night and day with these individual schools in order to help them establish their chapters and to get the ball rolling at their schools.
On Tuesday October 7th, SHPE FIU held its very first Noches de Ciencas event! Edward Gomez and the students at the Miami Beach Senior High SHPE Jr chapter put together this event as the first official SHPE Jr event of the year. The event brought students in the high school together to teach them how to think like engineers and how being an engineer can make you a superhero. The event had help from the entire extended SHPE familia with members from the UM SHPE chapter helping out as well as Jay Flores as the keynote speaker. Thanks to the combined effort, the students had a fun night of events and activities to show just how great being an engineer can be!
