The LAESA-SHPE Team is excited to invite you to our 27th Pre-College Engineering Day. PCED will be taken place virtually on Saturday March 19th, 2022. This event means a lot to us, as it is the most impactful community outreach event that we have hosted for 27 years. Our annual PCED is a great opportunity for high school students to get exposure to STEM. During the event we will be showing students different parts of the industry while guiding them through a project that will help them engage in STEM and help make their first step into college a smooth one! Through this we hope to show our Latinx high school community the importance of team-building, leadership, and professionalism. If you know a high school student that is interested in joining us for this event, please register through the link:https://lnkd.in/eyphcqKD This event wouldn't be possible without our sponsors and their collaboration.
