YOUR HELP NEEDED!
The SEAoA is once again sponsoring an award at the Future Cities competition. This is an annual event for 6th-8th grade students. The purpose is to expose these students to engineering and encourage this as a possible future career path. The competition will be virtual this year.
The students have been preparing since September. Around 100 teams normally make it to the regional finals. Teams of 3-4 students create a computer model of a city, write essays and narratives, build a scale model of part of their city and finally, they make a 7-minute presentation. Many societies such as the SEAoA give out awards pertinent to our fields.
We are looking for some volunteers to help out.
The time commitment is not significant. Teams will apply for awards this year, then we believe will have access to photos of their models, their essays and hopefully pre-recorded copies of the teams presentations. There will also be an opportunity to see the presentations live via Zoom. Specifics are still being worked out.
Judging will begin February 5th and will need to be completed by February 21st.
If anyone is able to participate, your help would be appreciated.
Please let Richard Dahlmann (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you can help out or would like more details.
It is a lot of fun seeing what ideas the kids come up with.
