The Dayton ASCE chapter and SAME 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 these fun and easy demonstrations 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 (amy.moore@bwsc.net).

No prior experience is necessary. Teams of both ASCE, SAME and student members will be staffing the booth.

Holiday Party Sponsors

The Dayton ASCE chapter would like to thank the sponsors of the 2016 Holiday Party.

Ohio House Bill 236, sponsored by Representative Louis W. Blessing, III, P.E.
