SHPE developed and translated two parent workshops that can be adapted for your use. The first workshop is on Understanding College Options and the second workshop is on Financial Aid. These presentations will help you educate parents about college access, funding, STEM career pathways and the fundamentals of STEM. The Noche de Ciencias Manual provides information on how to update the Financial Aid presentation with information about universities and colleges in your area.
