On Thursday, Feb. 17, our chapter had its second networking meeting, this time at AMIS (Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies), which has a high number of Hispanic students.

Representatives form iSPACE presented the Robotics programs that they organize, and which we would like to use as the base for our Robotics Club that we want to start at AMIS.

Several kids from AMIS were able to learn more about the Robotics program and get excited about the possibilities. We hope that our SHPE Members will get involved in helping these kids in their STEM Journey.

We would like to thank Maria Lang from AMIS for the hospitality, and iSPACE representatives for their insightful presentation, as well as representatives from UC, YMCA, and Lakota High School, who were able to join us.  

We hope to invite all our members soon to an official opening of the Robotics Club at AMIS!
