What is Noche de Ciencias™?

Noche de Ciencias™ events engage and inspire Hispanic youth (and their parents) to pursue STEM degrees and careers and ultimately advance SHPE’s mission and vision.

Noche de Ciencias™ programming is aligned with impactful STEM after-school programs that yield STEM specific benefits, such as pursuing STEM education and career paths later in life. Noche de Ciencias™ objectives are grouped into three (3) main categories:​

  • STEM Awareness and Interest: I KNOW STEM. Increase students’ awareness of and interest in STEM so that they can properly identify the different degrees, careers, and industries within the STEM field.​
  • SELF-EFFICACY IN STEM: I CAN DO STEM. Empower and strengthen students’ self-confidence in pursuing and achieving STEM degrees and careers.​
  • SELF-IDENTITY IN STEM: I AM STEM. Provide students opportunities to think and act as STEM professionals.​

These objectives are accomplished through interactive STEM activities, networking opportunities, and sharing information on SHPE, as well as, by helping parents understand STEM opportunities through bilingual Parent Workshops.
