About

Mission

SHPE changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.

Vision

SHPE’s vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers.

Second to None! Region 1!

That is our Region 1 chant. When we attend National Conferences like NILA or the SHPE Conference, each Region has a chant. So, this is how it works.
Leader: Second to none!
Everyone: Region 1!!
We repeat this a total of three (3) times, and there you have the Region 1 Chant!
So, say it loud and proud!

  • Deep learning used to reconstruct holograms, improve optical microscopy November 21, 2017
    New uses for deep learning have been developed, report researchers, specificially reconstructing a hologram to form a microscopic image of an object and improving optical microscopy. Their new holographic imaging technique produces better images than current methods that use multiple holograms, and it's easier to implement because it requires fewer measurements and performs computations faster.
  • Virtual reality allows you to look inside your body and could help improve drug delivery November 21, 2017
    Renderings of 3-D cells in the body are traditionally displayed using 2-D media, such as on a computer screen or paper; however, the advent of Virtual Reality (VR) headsets means it is now possible to visualize and interact with scientific data in a 3-D virtual world.
  • Quantum dots amplify light with electrical pumping November 20, 2017
    In a breakthrough development, scientists have shown that they can successfully amplify light using electrically excited films of the chemically synthesized semiconductor nanocrystals known as quantum dots.
  • Artificial photosynthesis gets big boost from new catalyst November 20, 2017
    A new catalyst brings researchers one step closer to artificial photosynthesis -- a system that, just like plants, would use renewable energy to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into stored chemical energy. By both capturing carbon emissions and storing energy from solar or wind power, the invention provides a one-two punch in the fight against climate […]
