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!

  • Risks vary widely in drone-human impacts September 19, 2017
    New research suggests there's wide variation in the risk that unmanned aircraft pose to people on the ground.
  • One step closer to lifelike robots September 19, 2017
    Researchers have developed a 3-D-printable synthetic soft muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight. The muscle has intrinsic expansion ability and, unlike previous artificial muscles, it does not require an external compressor or high voltage equipment, signaling a breakthrough in the creation of soft robots that can move independently. The new material also […]
  • New mirror-coating technology promises dramatic improvements in telescopes September 19, 2017
    An electrical engineer has teamed up with astronomers to improve telescope mirrors using thin-film technology from the electronics industry. They are developing new protective coatings using an atomic layer deposition system large enough to accommodate telescope mirrors.
  • DNA triggers shape-shifting in hydrogels, opening a new way to make 'soft robots' September 19, 2017
    Biochemical engineers have used sequences of DNA molecules to induce shape-changing in water-based gels, demonstrating a new tactic to produce "soft" robots and "smart" medical devices that do not rely on cumbersome wires, batteries or tethers.
