Event Details

A fun-filled, informative SHPE Jr. Region 5 Leadership Retreat/ Science Workshop with the goal of providing informational sessions on how to run an effective Noche de Ciencias/Science Night where some 41 chapters across the Region will be supporting to execute 31 Noche events this October, and how to run an effective SHPE Jr. chapter. There is current 41 SHPE Jr. chapters across Region 5 including Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, and Louisiana and we have a goal to target a minimum of 13 new chapters. In order to acheive that we need your help and support to promote the SHPE Jr. program and share best practices/lessons learned in order to help improve and grow the SHPE Jr. program. As a result, we will be having a workshop detailing the SHPE Jr. chapter requirements, benefits and values, new chapter initiation requirements, annual and monthly national reporting requirements, how to hold Jr. chapter events, mentoring session requirements, manage a schedule, and Jr. chapter fundraising techniques. We will also provide some information on upcoming SHPE Jr. regional events/conferencesl, scholarship opportunities, and introduce our new 2013-2014 Region-wide Robotics game competition. For the Pre-College SHPE Jr. chapter students, there will be a keynote speaker and two science activities where they will have the opportunity to learn about science and engineering, network with their regional SHPE Jr. peers, and compete against each other for prizes.
