Latino ERG Camp Workshop

On their 30th consecutive year, the PG&E Latino Employee Resource Group (ERG) once again organized a camp for 5th and 6th grade students at Camp Wishon at Bass Lake. 38 5th and 6th graders attended, as well as the over 40 volunteers and teachers that make this camp a huge success. The SHPE Fresno Professional Chapter participated by speaking about engineering to the camp attendees.
For this workshop, students learned about what an engineer is, what an engineer does, and the types of fields they work on. They also worked on designing a parachute and competed on who would have the slowest descent from an altitude of about 8 feet.
This is the second time we participate in this camp and we hope to be invited again next year!
