Familia Stories

The Familia is a core value of SHPE, but it is difficult to describe and impossible to replicate. You only recognize it when it’s already encompassed you. You’ll feel the warmth and sense of “home” and a superhero level of confidence. It is our formula, our secret recipe, to changing the world for the better.

Below you’ll find portals to stories about and by SHPE members. You’ll experience engineering, technology, and other STEM topics in a new and authentic way. It’s up-to-date information and takes on how our members are making a difference everyday.
