The Maricopa Community Colleges (MCC) and Intel employee are working together to invite middle and high school Latinas to community college campuses to learn more about possible education and career paths in STEM, and listen to other Latinas who have succeeded at these careers.
Members of Intel’s Latina Outreach Working Group noticed that Hispanic pre–college girls were not fully aware of the opportunities available beyond traditional roles. It is through the MCC’s annual Hermanas events they see a way to spread the word.
Hermanas is one of nearly 60 events that MCC campuses are hosting for this year’s statewide SciTech Festival, Arizona’s largest celebration of science and technology. For a list of MCC events open to the public, visitazscitech.com/events.
