American Society of Engineers Mid-Pacific Regional Conference
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MidPac Planning Committee
A committee of nine CSU, Chico students and faculty advisors have planned a weekend that includes a menagerie of fun mini-games and competitions, in addition to the Steel Bridge, Concrete Canoe and Water Treatment competitions. The mini-competitions, created around the conference’s theme of sustainability, include concrete bowling, canoe tug-o-wars, volleyball, twister and recycled steel horseshoes.
Students from each participating school will also present a paper prepared for the Mead Paper competition on the ASCE Vision 2025 memorandum and the ethics behind it. The memorandum focuses on what an engineer should be in the year 2025.
“We encourage the public to attend, especially children,” said Andrew Langelier, the student coordinator of the event. “It will be an exciting set of events, and the engineering beneath the projects might serve as a gateway to recruit the next generation of engineers.”
