There is a volunteer opportunity with the Dayton Metro Libraries, leading or assisting with their maker kits. The Dayton Metro Library system has 11 Maker Kits and is looking for volunteers to lead or assist with programs. This would be a terrific way for AFRL (and other base) personnel to be involved in the community and in helping grow future scientists, engineers, and other inventors.
Among the kits are Circuits, e-Textiles, Laser, Computing, and Programming of Finch Robots. The full list of kits is here:
The volunteer coordinator is Mr. David Hicks, firstname.lastname@example.org, 937-496-8638. They have had the kits for about a year and have been learning how to use them with different age groups. They’re open to new ideas for the existing kits and for new kits.
A great opportunity for Dayton Section members to give back!
CAREER, REPUTATION, RESUMES, PERFORMANCE, AND MORE…
Come join us for IEEE Dayton Women in Engineering (WIE) and Young Professional’s (YP) Brown Bag Lunch and Learn: “Developing Promotion Potential” featuring a prominent female leader in the WPAFB community, Ms. Barbara Cerny, the Deputy Director of the 88th Communications Group.
- “We all want to get promoted but what are the “keys to the kingdom?” How can we position ourselves to be the one person our unit, section, company can’t do without? Barb will let you all in on the secrets she’s discovered over the years of her government service. The sage wisdom is geared toward government civilians but the truths can be applied to military or commercial companies equally.”
- This event is a Brown Bag Lunch and Learn so please bring your own lunch. There will be a special treat for attendees sponsored by IEEE Dayton Section, Women in Engineering-Young Professionals (WIE-YP) Affinity Group
- Price: Free to IEEE members AND non-IEEE members
