Engineering Demonstrations at the Advanced Learning Library
The Wichita Branch of ASCE is partnering with Wichita's new Advanced Learning Library to host hands-on engineering demonstrations for local youth on the first Saturday of each month during the school year from 10:30 to 11:30. Past-President Daniel Schrant organized our first session on September 1, and we have now successfully hosted a total 4 of these come-and-go demonstrations.The lastest was on December 1. Karl Svaty of MKEC Engineering was at the Advanced Learning Library to teach students about truss bridges! See more photos on MKEC's LinkedIn page.
The next event will be on Saturday, Janaury 5 We will be conducting more demonstrations on the first Saturday of each month thereafter, but we need additional volunteers and ideas. If you are interested in volunteering an two hours of your time or know of a demonstration we can include in this series, please contact Daniel Schrant at (316) 660-1778.
I hope everyone had a safe and relaxing summer! As the new incoming president, I am excited for the year ahead. We have a great group of officers that are working hard to make your ASCE Wichita Branch the best it can be. I would like to thank our outgoing president, Daniel Schrant, for his hard work this past year. Daniel was a great leader for our group and did a fantastic job. He was always on top of things and had great new ideas for our branch to try out.
I would encourage those of you who are ASCE members to reach out to those colleagues that aren’t yet members. Try to get them involved with our branch, whether that is attending our monthly meetings or volunteering for events like the highway cleanup. As always, feel free to reach out to me or any one of our officers if you ever have any questions or would like to get involved!
