STEM Outreach at UNO Engineers Day
On February 19, 2020, the American Society of Civil Engineers New Orleans Branch Outreach Volunteers Group set up a booth at the University of New Orleans’ 3rd annual Engineer’s Day in Honor of National Engineer’s Week. Approximately 2,000 middle and high school students were in attendance. The volunteers spoke to the students about what civil engineers do while the ASCE Dream Big movie was played in the auditorium. At the booth, the volunteers helped the children build geodesic domes using gum drops and toothpicks. With this activity, the students learned about the power of the triangle.
