On May 6th, the Cincinnati’s chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) hosted its 1st TOYOTA Plant Tour as part of SHPE STEM initiatives for Hispanic children in the Greater Cincinnati region. 

A total of 10 students from the First Lego League Robotics initiative at the Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies (AMIS) and 18 students from the SHPE Jr. Chapter initiative at Withrow University High School participated on the tour. The adults in attendance were 4 SHPE Cincinnati Board Members and 1 Teacher from Withrow. 

The kids were able to see first hand how their experience with robotics competition can be utilized later on in real life with real indurstrial robots. It was a great experience for them, and a great motivation!

We would like to thank Toyota for making it possible!
