NOCHE DE CIENCIAS
Noche de Ciencias – Family Science Nights - is a national initiative to have three weeks of science and engineering fun activities and education during October (Hispanic Heritage Month) and February (the month of E-Week). Noche De Ciencias serves to engage the Hispanic community in relaxed environments to have fun with science and engineering and promote college awareness in a bilingual setting. SHPE student and professional chapters across the United States and Puerto Rico engage their local communities with activities for K-12 students and informative bilingual workshops for their parents. The goal of Noche De Ciencias is to provide access and awareness of STEM fields in order to broaden the participation of Hispanics along all segments of the science and engineering pathway. The measurable goal of each event is to show how hands-on participation and information change the way people think about STEM fields.
