The Dayton ASCE chapter will once again be participating in TechFest at Sinclair Community College. TechFest is a 2-day STEM outreach event to expose children of all ages to science and math outside of the classroom. ASCE will be hosting a booth in which children can participate in hands-on demonstrations of civil engineering concepts. We are seeking volunteers in two hour increments to lead a fun and easy demonstration (gum drop dome) and share their experiences in civil engineering with the students. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Amy Moore (amoore@LJBinc.com or DaytonASCE.ymg@gmail.com). No prior experience is necessary. Teams of both ASCE Section members and UD student chapter members will be staffing the booth.

ETHOS Presentations

Great presentations by UD ASCE ETHOS students!
This past summer, students from the University of Dayton traveled to various locations to put there engineering skills to good use. They traveled to Africa, Guatemala and Cameron to tackle real engineering problems. Some of the projects they worked on while they were in the foreign countries were water delivery systems, water quality and educating the local residents about the importance maintaining the newly installed water systems. The students worked alongside with the local residents to implement the projects.

(WASHINGTON)—The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) is once again bringing a first-class, virtual education experience to the desktops of hundreds of city and county government officials charged with helping build, manage and maintain the millions of miles of roads, bridges and transit systems that make up the U.S. transportation network. The free, online learning event, known as LōTrans™, the Local Transportation Management & Safety Virtual Conference, will take place December 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., EST, on your nearest desktop or laptop computer. Sessions on asset management, state and local trends in transportation funding, best practices in maintaining unpaved roads, snow removal, flagging on low volume roads, temporary traffic control measures on gravel roads, and encore presentations on road work zone safety issues are on the agenda. Now in its third year, LoTrans™ was organized with the leadership, counsel and support of ARTBA’s Transportation Officials Division (TOD), which includes city, county, state and federal officials from across the nation. It is being supported by the National Association of County Engineers, the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association, and the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse. Check out the full program schedule and list of speakers. Register: www.lotransvirtualconference.org. Established in 1902, the Washington, D.C.-based ARTBA is the “consensus voice” of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry.
