Space Grant Summer Camp for High School Students


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:

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).

UW Concrete Canoe 2016-Going to Nationals!

Hello SHPE Puget Sound,

Please consider supporting this campaign, to the benefit of SHPE at University of Washington student members.

This campaign is for the University of Washington Concrete Canoe, a civil & environmental engineering student club that is founded on applying our engineering knowledge outside of the classroom. They have worked incredibly hard all year long to design and build our canoe, and have managed to pull a successful 1st place when we competed in Idaho for the ASCE Regional Competition!

Fermin Bautista, from SHPE UW, has been heavily involved in this club for 2 years now, and has always enjoyed being a part of this team.

He is gaining invaluable experiences working with the team members.  The team is on their way to Texas for national competition and is seeking support to cover the cost for transportation, food, and lodging.

Anything helps.

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! Here is the link to our website with more information on what our Business Series does and how it affects the Latina community. (
