Events this coming weekend

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

For those of you looking to do something this weekend, there are two events that need your help:

MATHCOUNTS

Memphis-Mathcounts-Logo-21

The Memphis Chapter of the Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers will be hosting our annual MATHCOUNTS competition on February 6, 2016, and we need your help!

This year’s competition will be held at Southwest Tennessee Community College (Macon Campus). Your commitment would be from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm or so, depending on your role in the competition. We need all sorts of people – proctors, graders, runners, etc. If you are available we can put you to work. I can send more details if you’d like – just ask.

A few important details:

1. You don’t have to be a math whiz to be a volunteer. That’s the kids’ job.
2. We have free pizza!

Please contact Drake Danley (Drake.Danley@kimley-horn.com) if you are available to help at your earliest convenience. As I mentioned, if you have any questions at all about the competition or your duties as a volunteer, just shoot me him email. You can also check us out on the web at www.memphismathcounts.org

IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Capture

In 2015 January, the new IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS) was formed to bring the importance of the management perspective on technology and engineering to IEEE members. The new TEMS will connect you with an active community that will give you access to expertise, knowledge, and education in a field that touches us all, as well as access to the Engineering Management Review publication, which compiles the best articles from sources such as the Harvard Business News.

Join TEMS today!

Robotics Program Needs Volunteers

FIRST is a K-12 robotics program founded by Dean Kamen (of Segway fame) that is designed to get kids interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM for short). In Memphis, there are a number of First Lego League Teams (30+), 14 First Robotics Competition teams and a few First Tech Challenge teams. All need mentors to help design, build and program robots. There is also a FLL Championship at the University of Memphis and a number of FRC Events to help the students with their robots all of which need volunteers.

IEEE Memphis is a proud sponsor of the West TN FLL Championship held at the University of Memphis and we strongly encourage our members to get involved in this wonderful program that encourages students to learn about engineering!
