In March, three Columbia High School students, and their parents, traveled with Site Manager, Florinda Carrasco to Pullman for the 2015 SOLES (Society of Latino Engineers and Scientists) Latino Parent Conference. This event gave the students and their parents the opportunity to visit Washington State University and participate in hands on workshops in the science and engineering fields. The families were able to tour the science and engineering buildings and got to see first-hand some of the college student's work and experiments. The families were then able to hear presentations about the admission's process and financal aid, all in Spanish. The families got the wonderful opportunity to hear from not only guest speaker, Beatriz Schweitzer, who together with her husband build the Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories but also from Latino students. The students talked about their own personal experiences at WSU. One of the students was in the process of obtaning her Doctorate degree. The parents were able to come away with a lot of useful information about the importance of higher education awareness and this event gave them the tools to help them navigate through the college process. Though it was a long day, the students and parents walked away with a lot of useful experiences and information.
