February 22, 2020 - 10:30am to 3:00pm

National Engineers Week is fast approaching and SEAOI is excited to continue our participation in the DuPage Area STEM Expo.  This event typically sees over 1,000 attendees and is designed to introduce children of all ages to the field of engineering through hands-on activities and demonstrations.  SEAOI will have three display tables featuring engineering models and “toys” that provide an enriching hands-on practical application of structural engineering principals.  Additionally, SEAOI member Larry Novak will be exploring the wonderful world of skyscrapers in his presentation “From Legos to Skyscrapers” where event attendees will also have a chance to build their own Lego tower and see how well it survives a simulated earthquake. 

For this event to be impactful, SEAOI needs volunteers to assist with setup, takedown, and visitor interaction during a morning and/or afternoon shift.
