SEAO YMF Education Outreach Needs Your Help!
Last year the YMF gave presentations on structural engineering to 34 classrooms reaching over 1,000 middle school and high school students In the Portland area. This year we want to go even bigger, but we need your help. Our goal this year is 1,500 students which means we need to find more schools and teachers to go visit. If you know of a middle school or high school teacher who is interested in having a couple of YMF members come to their class and give a short presentation about what structural engineering is and what we do and follow the presentation up with a fun activity let us know. Interested teachers should contact Seth Thomas at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
