Noche de Ciencias “Night of Science” STEM event

On April 12, 2023, join the United States Patent and Trademark Office's (USPTO) Office of Education, in collaboration with the USPTO chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and Alexandria City Public Schools, for Noche de Ciencias (Night of Science) at the USPTO's headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.

Initiated in 2008, Noche de Ciencias is a SHPE national program introducing K-12 students and families to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through hands-on activities. Additionally, it exposes participants to college and career information in STEM fields.

The event is expected to draw over 500 visitors from the area. There will be hands-on STEM-related activities designed to help develop problem solving, inventive thinking, and introduce visitors to intellectual property concepts like patents and trademarks. The USPTO and other STEM-focused federal agencies will have exhibits, information, and presentations that showcase STEM concepts and careers to students.

No registration is needed for this event. For questions or more information, please contact the USPTO's Office of Education.
