Kentucky Señoritas in STEM

As a Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) Professional Chapter our goal is to change lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development. Our Kentucky Señoritas in STEM program's vision is a world where Latinas in Kentucky are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Through our program, the Kentucky Bluegrass SHPE Chapter is focused on encouraging curiosity and exploration, helping girls overcome fear of math and science by sharing advice as a STEM professional organization.
