April Meeting

ASME’s spring meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 11th in the A. Glenn Hill Center room 122. The meeting will start at 6:30 PM, and everyone is encouraged to attend.

The meeting will consist of:

– Free pizza and pop

– An engineering impromptu challenge

– Sign-ups for an upcoming plant tour we will be hosting

– Elections for next school year’s ASME executive board

New members of ASME will get a year of free membership to the International ASME organization which includes several benefits such as a large career data base, scholarships, etc. All members have the opportunity to run for an executive board position. Being on the executive board gives you a chance to showcase leadership skills, and joining ASME opens up many opportunities in the engineering world. I hope to see many people there being involved and having fun as engineers and leaders. All majors are welcome. See you there!

February Meeting

Congrats to all the teams that took place in our impromptu design competition!

Contestants were instructed to build a glider using a minimum of seven different items selected from a hodgepodge of craft goodies in the ASME locker. Gliders were dropped from the second floor of the STEM building, and judged solely on hang time. Team “Thundarcats” gave an awe-inspiring performance placing second with a hang time of 3.58 seconds. The Thundarcat’s effort was not enough to defeat Team “one” which managed to stay aloft for a remarkable 4.83 seconds.
