Engineers Week 2013
SEAoAL would like to encourage you to celebrate and help us promote the positive contributions engineers make to society every day by participating in Engineers Week. On the week of February 17-23, engineers will be presenting to students all over the country regarding how engineers make dreams a reality. NCSEA has developed a power point presentation that can be given at schools. The PowerPoint file can be used as a template that can be customized to an appropriate age group. The presentation is designed to promote Structural Engineering to students and help expand knowledge of our profession. For more information about Engineers Week, visit the National Engineers Week Foundation website at www.eweek.org . To obtain a copy of this free PowerPoint presentation template so you can promote engineering at a school near you, please contact the Executive Director of SEAoAL, Rhea Williams, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On January 10th, the YMG hosted a lunch and learn on “Modern Concrete Technology.” Philip Brandt, Secretary of ACI 360 and Vice-President with Euclid Chemical Company, gave the presentation to 33 attendees.
