Another new program founded in 2021 is Equipando Padres. At SHPE, we know that family support is one of the most important keys for success in STEM. We created this program to provide parents of first-generation-to-college and low SES Hispanic students the knowledge and tools to better support their children earning engineering degrees.
An Advisory Board was established to help direct the implementation. The organizations participating include AISES, DISCOVER, HACU, LAPPS, LULAC, NAF, Raytheon Technologies, the STEM Education Coalition, and SHPE. Together, we conducted extensive background research, which we will publish at the ASEE Annual Conference Proceedings in June 2022
