Space Grant Summer Camp for High School Students

Hello,

My name is Isabel Carrera and I want to share with you a unique opportunity that the Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium has prepared for this summer. Mission Earth Scout One/Misión Exploración Tierra 1 is a four-week STEM summer camp on the University of Washington campus to inspire bilingual youth through hands-on activities. The program is also seeking to recruit certified teachers to serve as program mentors.

Participants will have fun learning about climate change while gaining valuable STEM skills such as problem-solving, creativity and collaboration. The camps will also give the students an opportunity to innovate, work with actual scientists in a variety of fields, and learn how they can make a change in the world.

During the camp, students will explore STEM careers through experiments, field trips, and visits to area museums and laboratories on the University of Washington campus. Students will interact with scientists while completing guided experiments and activities. These experiences will help students develop high-level research skills and subject matter expertise, and allow them to earn credentials valuable for college admission.

Program Dates and Location:

  • August 1- 26, 2016
  • Monday through Friday, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Application forms can be obtained through the website, both in English and Spanish: http://www.waspacegrant.org/for_educators/k-12_education/nesspsummercamps.html

Applications are due no later than June 3, 2016.

Please, help us to spread the word. I’m attaching a flyer in English and in Spanish to be distributed as your best convenience.

This is a low-cost summer camp, although, there will be a $5 fee per week for snacks (no lunch will be provided).

If you have any question, please contact me via email: micz@uw.edu or contact the Administrative Coordinator Juan Carlos Chávez: jcc5@uw.edu

Thanks for your support!

Latina Style Business Series

On behalf of LATINA Style Magazine, we would like to invite SHPE to participate in the Seattle LATINA Style Business Series.
LATINA Style Inc. is proud to present the following partnership opportunity for the 2016 Business Series Tour. This interactive business development program brings together Latina business owners with the key corporations and government agencies that provide the goods and services needed by those outstanding entrepreneurs to create or expand their business. Over 32,000 Latina entrepreneurs have participated in the Series since its inception in 1998.

The program covers a wide range of topics including: access to capital; strategic sales & marketing strategies; professional, technology, and communications services; corporate & federal procurement opportunities; and so much more. The seminar is a one-day event that includes an exhibit area with a networking breakfast, panel sessions, Latina Entrepreneur Award luncheon with a keynote speaker, and a networking reception (held the night before and by invitation only). Each participant is given a commemorative gift bag which will include items from our sponsors and partners. An excellent opportunity to reach the growing Hispanic market!
