Si Se Puede Hacer Ciencias Y Matematicas

Yes, I Can Do Science and Mathematics

Funded by the outreach components of successful STEM grants at other Kansas regional institutions

Si Se Puede is a program for 6th-8th grade Hispanic students and is held every year on a Saturday in the fall. Students participate in four hands-on workshops taught by Hispanic professionals from all over the state of Kansas. The workshops allow students to explore STEM topics such as: engineering, physics, medicine, chemistry, and veterinary medicine.

Students also hear words of encouragement from Hispanic professionals during a formal luncheon in ESU’s Memorial Union. Tours of campus are given by Hispanic ESU students, door prizes are handed out, and each student receives a Si Se Puede t-shirt.

Parents and teachers are encouraged to attend the program as well. 

Registration is on a first come first serve basis and is limited to the first 50 students. Preference is given to those who have not previously attended. On-site registrations will not be accepted; you must preregister. The program marked its 10-year anniversary in 2016.
