Happy National Latina Day everyone!!

The SHPE-GMU familia would like to show our appreciation for all the latinas across the world and hope that wherever you are, please know that you’re loved and supported!

As a student organization that supports STEM majors, we wanted to take the time to shine some love and appreciation for Ellen Ochoa, a female Hispanic STEM engineer! We hope that more and more latinas and females in general, have the opportunity to showcase their expertise as Ellen Ochoa did within the STEM industry!

Are you interested in building sustainable home solutions for families in rural Guatemala? Next summer, @Volunteers Around the World is going to work with local families in Guatemala and we are accepting applications for volunteers! We will be taking a group of students who are passionate about the environment and sustainability, and we will give them the tools and direction needed to help improve the living conditions of the families we are working with. We will do this by implementing home solutions that will improve living conditions by providing basic needs in a sustainable manner This includes: compost boxes recycled water and water filtration systems family gardens latrines. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about sustainability, farming, clean water solutions, and a new culture! Students typically come from an engineering or environmental science background, but we do accept applications from all backgrounds and majors. If this sounds like something you would like to lead email me at [email protected] for more info! We are looking to bring a VAW Global chapter to your campus and need a TEAM LEADER to do so.
