Science Day This past week we held our Annual science day event, in which SHPE/UA promotes science to our young community. We have kids come to the U of A for day and we expose them to different workshops in which they learn how science can be applied to many different aspects of our world. One of the workshops they did was called Science of Baseball. The Science of Baseball is workshop created by our very own advisor Dr. Valerdi. In this workshop the students hit a baseball as hard as they could and the equipment that Dr. Valerdi had measured the blast factor of each of the students hit. This workshop was very fun and also very educational; all the students enjoyed it.
La FamiliaThis past October, we had our annual community outreach event in which we brought in parents with limited resources and exposed them to the advances of cyberspace and technology. We taught them skills ranging from how to type quickly to how to write a resume. The volunteers had the opportunity to practice their presentation skills and build a relationship with attendees. At the end of the day four lucky attendees walked away with either a PC or a best buy gift card.
Guests from companies like Raytheon, IBM, and Intel will tell you what your resume should look like; what kinds of things you should say at an interview; how to dress at a career fair; and will answer those tough questions you really want answered. To top it off, SHPE sponsored conferences are open for your taking!
We bring you experienced representatives who are behind study abroad, graduate school and internship opportunities. Learn what you have to do to set yourself up for academic success, from how you can prepare to how you can apply.
To complement the many opportunities of leadership within committees, outreach events, fundraisers, LeaderSHPE, but you can also get the chance to attend RLDC, and as a member of the executive Board, you can attend NILA. These conferences are an excellent way to learn what it takes to become the a strong leader in all the right aspects. The opportunities are endless - it's up to you to go get them and make them work for your advantage!
It can't go without saying that we are one of the largest most active Engineering clubs and campus and we know how to have fun, while still focusing on a strong academic performance and helping out in our community.
