We partner with local schools, libraries, and organizations to educate the public about civil engineering. Our recent events include engineering lessons during Engineers Week and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Engineer-in-Training summer program. If you are interested in partnering with us to host a community outreach event, complete the form below to connect with our Philanthropy Chair.
Engineers Week (or "E-Week") was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) and is celebrated during the last week of February. ASCE SF YMF develops lesson kits and leads hands-on lessons, such as gummy bear toothpick tower and paper bridge design.
STEM ENGINEER-IN-TRAINING SUMMER PROGRAM
The engineer-in-training (or "EIT") certification is required for engineers who want to become licensed professionals. The summer program nods to the EIT certification by awarding participants EIT-in-training certificates! The program includes lessons such as structural engineering (gummy bear toothpick towers), marine engineering (tin foil boats), mechanical engineering (pasta cars), aerospace engineering (paper airplanes), and environmental engineering (water filtration). Our volunteers lead participants through each lesson over a four-week program. Events are hosted during the summer through local libraries. This past year, we are grateful to have partnered with the Oakland, Berkeley, San Pablo, and Richmond public libraries.
