Science Is Fun!

It’s time for Noche de Ciencias!
The SHPE Silicon Valley Professional Chapter (SHPE-SV) is excited to announce it’s first exciting technology and science awareness night of 2016: Noche de Ciencias/Family Science Night!

May thanks to our sponsor:



At Noche De Ciencias, students will experience various hands-on activities about the different fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) with volunteers who are real-life and aspiring engineers and scientists.

While the students enjoy their activities, parents will participate in round-tables to learn about college admissions and programs available to finance higher education costs. They will also learn how and why its important to start preparing early.
