Get Involved with SHPE

SHPE Jr. Chapters provide youth with opportunities to participate in hands-­on STEM activities. Members have the opportunity to attend the Pre-­College Symposium held at SHPE’s National Conference, participate in academic and engineering summer camps, compete in National Science Bowls, participate in local science fairs along with many other opportunities.  SHPE Jr. Chapter members also receive mentoring and develop leadership skills through the active involvement of SHPE Chapter members.
