Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

This year’s ITEST PI conference falls during National Hispanic Heritage month. A time Hispanics, Latinos, Latinas and Latinx come together to celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The theme for this year: Esperanza: A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope, “invites us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage and to reflect on how  great our tomorrow can be… It encourages us to reflect on all of the contributions Hispanics have made in the past and will continue to make in the future.”

Similarly, this year’s theme for ITEST PI conference “Reconsiderando Equitable STEM Learning Through Technology Innovation: Pandemic Challenges and Opportunities," it’s about Latinos, Latinas, Latinx, and English speakers coming together despite a challenging year.

Below are a few ITEST projects who’ve contributed to create a better tomorrow!
