FBPE staff recently volunteered at the three-day 2018 Southeast Student Conference of the American Society of Civil Engineers and at the 2018 Florida MathCounts Competition.
Students from 26 universities from around the southeastern United States, including Puerto Rico, took over the University of Florida campus in Gainesville to flex their engineering muscles in competitions, including steel bridges, concrete canoes, geowalls, and dynamic dams, at the ASCE student conference.
Hundreds of middle-school “Mathletes” gathered in Daytona Beach for the Florida MathCounts Competition to challenge their math skills against one another and the clock March 22-23.
Spring is a busy time for FBPE outreach. In addition to the two volunteer opportunities, FBPE staff or representatives have or will be making presentations on engineering licensure to students in colleges of engineering at Florida A&M University-Florida State University, the University of Florida, the University of Central Florida, the University of West Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Valencia College this semester.
