Are you an engineer who'd like to guide the next generation into civil engineering? Civil Engineering Clubs are places for high school students to meet engineer mentors and explore civil engineering through activities, lessons, and field trips.
A national competition is held each year to build a sense of community between the clubs. For the 2016-17 school year the clubs were given the blank layout for a parking lot and had to submit a layout for the lot, a written report that detailed the decisions and costs involved, and a video "selling" a client on why to chose their lot. Top placing teams receive a cash award, a trophy for highest placement in each judging division, and each team member receives a certificate of participation.
The results were announced on Friday May 5. You can view the archived webinar.
