Week 1 Update!

October 30, 2018

Slow and steady wins the race! It has officially been a week since SHPE has launched their campaign and although we’ve had a slow start, we are excited to continue to strive to reach our goal.

 

We are getting ready for our biggest outreach event of the semester, Noche de Ciencias (NDC). We are so excited to engage with 50 high school students from Oklahoma City and motivate them to explore the possibilities of STEM. With a new implemented robotic competition, this year’s NDC will be one for the books!

 

OU SHPE is also preparing to send sixteen of our members to the national convention in Cleveland, Ohio, to gain professional experience and expand their network. Two members, Bao Do and Freddy Vega will be representing OU in the selective Nissan competition, while others will be presenting undergraduate research and competing in hackathons.

 

We are thankful for all our supporters in helping us make in impact in the community and hope you all share this opportunity in helping us reach our goal!

$5

Sooner Donor

A donation in this amount could be used to help our SHPE Jr members pay for the SHPE national membership fee.

$20

Bronze Donor

When promoting our events throughout campus, it is more likely for a student to attend a meeting that provides food. With this donation, our organization will be able to ensure that there is food at our general body meetings which will allow us to further attract more students to our meetings.

$50

Silver Donor

A donation of this size will allow SHPE to rent locations on campus to host our general body meetings and friendSHPE events! The more donations of this size that we receive, the more locations on campus we can rent which will ultimately allow us to reach a bigger crowd!

$100

Gold Donor

A generous donation of this amount would be used towards paying for events such as, traveling to regionals and our paying for a member’s registration to Regional Leadership Development Conference, that occurs once a year.

$250

Crimson Donor

One of the main things our members look forward to is being able to attend the annual SHPE conference that occurs in November. Our chapter aims at paying for most of the trip, and we only require our members to pay for registration, which begins at $225-$250. In recent years, some of our members have shied away from this opportunity due to financial issues, and a donation in this size would cover for one member’s registration fee. Donors will receive a thank you note from a member that benefits from this!

$500

Ultimate Donor

Sponsors an entire Jr SHPE chapter: As an organization, one of our main goals in recent years has been to strengthen our outreach initiatives. We believe that to truly live up to our mission of empowering the Hispanic community through STEM, we have to begin from the roots, which is our young students. We believe we best do this through our SHPE Jr chapters that we charter in inner city high schools. A Jr. chapter runs like a college chapter, but funding for our Jr. chapters is more challenging, a donation in this size would cover an entire Jr. chapter. Donors will receive thank you notes from the chapter that benefits from this!
