“We’re so excited that ELAC students have volunteered to create this opportunity for local kids to learn that science, technology, engineering, and math are fun and cool through this cardboard challenge” states Candelaria Flores, SHPE ELAC Chapter Interim President.  “Plus we’re inviting parents to participate, so they can learn about engineering careers for their kids and also be involved in their kids’ project on site.  It’s a great learning experience for the whole Familia.”

The ELAC Engineering Club & ELAC SHPE Noche de Ciencias will feature a fun, hands on activity for K-12 grade level kids to learn and implement engineering principals, plus kids have an opportunity to win prizes for their cardboard game designs.  Parent workshops will also be conducted, which will feature sessions on financial aid and an opportunity to learn about career path in engineering by a current Hispanic engineer and Hispanic engineering students.
