If you couldn’t get enough of Glendale’s inaugural Tech Week back in 2016, you might not have to wait to see some cool projects and learn more about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) here in Glendale. The Glendale Community College Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) is inviting community members to attend its 2nd annual Maker Faire this Saturday, February 25th from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. The Faire will be located at J. Walter Smith Student Center on the GCC Campus.
College and high school students, as well as industry professionals from the Los Angeles County Region, will be showcasing their original projects and career information. Attendees will have a chance to get hands on with STEM-related activities, learn about career opportunities in STEM fields, and see the interesting projects students from around the region have designed. The event is a fantastic opportunity to network with industry professionals. Of course, no event would be complete without a free continental breakfast and lunch catered by In-N-Out.
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers has a long history of connecting prospective students with professionals in their field of interest, and inspiring people to follow a career path in STEM. Founded by a group of engineers from the City of Los Angeles in 1974, SHPE has chapters around the United States which seeks to bring students, professionals, and organizations together via local and national level conferences and social events. The Glendale Community College chapter continues that history by being a strong bridge between its student members, the Glendale community, and professionals in the Los Angeles County region.
