Ay Mijo/a Book Series

The Ay Mijo/a Book Series

The Ay Mijo/a Book Series is a great resource for libraries, schools, churches, YMCAs, boys and girls clubs and personal libraries. The books are a GREAT way to motivate young students to be the next generation engineer.

The Ay Mijo/a Book Series starts off with 24-short inspirational stories of Hispanic female and male engineers as they grew up with their families, spending special holidays at home as they grew to become one of America's most successful engineers serving as a role-model for many other children. (More Info)

Books are available online for a low price of $14.95 and $17.95. Proceeds from the sale of these books go to the SHPE Foundation Scholarship Endowment, which supports college scholarships for deserving Hispanic students.
