Meet the Mexican American super brains of MIT= The prestigeous Massachusetts Institute of Technology a private research university located in Cambridge ,Massachusetts.MIT has five schools and one college, containing a total of 32 academic departments, with a strong emphasis on scientific and technological research. This illustrious school has an awesome group representing!  The MAES Society = Mexican American Engineers and Scientists. Just who is MAES and what is their purpose?

The primary mission of the Society is one of image development.

Secondly, by providing a networking and nurturing environment to develop their professional image, its members have opportunities to develop and hone their leadership, communication, management and technical skills. The goals of MAES are to assist its members with:

Development of opportunities
Placement and recruitment

Promoting science and engineering among students
Scholarship assistance

Next time someone tries to tear you or our people down by saying that Mexicans don’t have: the talent, brains,  the drive or dedication , just look to people like these wonderful talents that not only gained entrance to such an important institute, but are there as leaders. Yet another fine example of “SI SE PUEDE”

P.S. Speaking of “SI SE PUEDE” check out this awesome article by lauramartinez.wordpress.com entitled “FORGET ARIZONA. MEXICO GETS OWN NASA YAY!”
