3D Manufacturing Lab Update

VOLUNTEERS AND TEACHERS needed! We are developing a future curriculum around the 3D Manufacturing Lab.  We still need volunteers and are working with Alief ISD to bring the quadcopter competition to fruition in December. If you interested in 3D manufacturing, we need your help as a mentor for our Quadcopter Competition.  This is a tremendous opportunity to learn Project Management and supervisory skills as we need engineers to work with High School students in designing and building quadcopters.  If you have an interest in this cutting-edge technology, we want you!  Work on the quadcopters will be in the late afternoon and on weekends and we will work with your work schedule.

If you are interested in being a part of this exciting and educational opportunity, please contact Stephen Vasconi via email and RSVP.

Join ASME South Texas on LinkedIn

 
Our ASME South Texas LinkedIn Group is growing!  We continue to build our membership on today's hottest Professional Network.  We are looking for a few people who would be interested in becoming Admins to help with keeping the site up to date with informative articles on Mechanical Engineering here in Houston.  There is also a Job Board, so as you become aware of positions, please post them up.  This is a great way to become involved and connect with other ASME members in the Houston Area.  Join the conversation today!

Still Hoarding Magazines??

 
You're thinking, "You know, I may need to refer to that August 1932 Mechanical Engineering article on the future of battery storage capacity and how we are only 3 years away from achieving Edison's Dream of full electric power in the US."  Well, it may be true.  Someday.  Meh.  I have a better idea.  ASME South Texas supports High School STEM education through the distribution of Mechanical Engineering Magazines and other technical periodicals.  This program is one of the most popular in the area, as the magazines help inspire future engineers.  Your magazines will make a real difference by helping students reach their potential as future engineers! Don't be a hoarder of magazines - please bring those magazines to our meetings throughout the year.
