Volunteers at 2013 AIChE Annual Meeting K-12 Outreach

On Location ESTAZOLAM FOR SALE, Amid the organized chaos that was the lobby of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel on Sunday morning, November 3rd, 47 high school students eager to learn more about chemical engineering made their way through the maze of people to AIChE’s Outreach in Action event. The 9th through 12th grade students came from five high schools in the San Francisco Unified School District, ESTAZOLAM interactions, Where can i cheapest ESTAZOLAM online, with little to no knowledge about what it is that we as chemical engineers actually do.

Over the course of the morning, no prescription ESTAZOLAM online, ESTAZOLAM without prescription, the students visited the Chem-E-Car poster session, learned about the properties of carbon dioxide through several table-top experiments, ESTAZOLAM natural, Rx free ESTAZOLAM, and heard from an accomplished group of chemical engineering professionals about career opportunities. Following a break for lunch, ESTAZOLAM pics, Buy ESTAZOLAM online cod, the students were invited to return to witness the Chem-E-Car competition, and about 20 of the students did so, buy ESTAZOLAM without a prescription. ESTAZOLAM wiki, The event started with the high school students talking with members of 14 of this year’s Chem-E-Car teams, who had previously volunteered to explain the operating principles and design aspects of their respective vehicles, purchase ESTAZOLAM for sale. The excitement conveyed by the teams proved to be an upbeat and energetic way to engage the high schoolers, who then returned to the event meeting room eager to learn more, ESTAZOLAM FOR SALE.

Next, the students were educated about the properties of carbon dioxide through a series of experiments designed by Prof, after ESTAZOLAM. Real brand ESTAZOLAM online, Tony Butterfield of the University of Utah and his research group. (The experiments were developed through an NSF grant on carbon sequestration that is being co-led by Columbia University and AIChE.) By making carbonic acid and then calcium carbonate (i.e., where can i buy cheapest ESTAZOLAM online, Order ESTAZOLAM from mexican pharmacy, chalk), the students learned how carbon dioxide can be fixated and, ESTAZOLAM schedule, ESTAZOLAM street price, hence, removed from the atmosphere, ESTAZOLAM from canada. Get ESTAZOLAM, The students were then asked to consider how to scale up the table-top experiments to a scale suitable to handle the annual carbon footprint of the average American.(At this point, Prof, generic ESTAZOLAM. ESTAZOLAM FOR SALE, Butterfield invoked his “5 elephant” rule, equating the annual carbon footprint to the weight of 5 elephants.)

The morning ended with the students hearing from 10 chemical engineering practitioners, ranging from current undergraduate and graduate students, through young professionals, to several very experienced “veterans.” The panel did a great job of communicating the reasons why they became chemical engineers, as well as the ways that their current work continues to motivate and interest them. ESTAZOLAM forum, The students were impressed by the breadth of chemical engineering opportunities that were discussed, and asked many insightful follow-up questions, buying ESTAZOLAM online over the counter.

For the students who returned after lunch, the experience of observing the Chem-E-Car competition first hand left them with a palpable sense of the excitement that is chemical engineering, what is ESTAZOLAM, as the teams they had seen at the morning poster session raced their cars under the watchful eyes of hundreds of onlookers.

This event continues a trend, started last year, of conducting educational outreach activities as a part of every Spring and Annual Meeting. We hope to engage a broader cross-section of AIChE to participate in the coming years, and would welcome anyone interested in becoming a part of this effort. If interested, please send an email.

On Sunday, October 28th, a group of 27 students from several Pittsburgh-area high schools learned more about chocolate and chemical engineering, at an outreach event organized by AIChE’s Societal Impact Operating Council (SIOC). The event was held at the David L. DELTASONE natural, Lawrence Convention Center, site of the 2012 AIChE Annual Meeting.

The centerpiece of the event was a session led by engineers from The Hershey Company, is DELTASONE addictive, during which the students learned about chemical engineers' roles in the food industry, DELTASONE street price, through a presentation, hands-on experiment, and a problem-solving exercise, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal.

In the hands-on experiment, Is DELTASONE safe, the students explored the importance of viscosity in making various chocolate products and used an emulsifier, soya lechitin, to modify the viscosity of melted chocolate, order DELTASONE from mexican pharmacy. Armed with this knowledge, they then worked in teams to solve a practical engineering problem – determining the economic-optimum pump and pipe size for transporting 5,000 gal/hr of a less-viscous (for chocolate bars) and a more-viscous (for chocolate kisses) chocolate melt 1,000 feet from a storage tank to production equipment, DELTASONE FOR SALE. Guided by AIChE student members from the University of Pittsburgh, Generic DELTASONE, every team was able to complete the problem and determine the right answer, qualifying for a selection of Hershey-themed prizes.

In a second activity, DELTASONE canada, mexico, india, the high-school students visited several of the Chem-E-Car teams during the morning Chem-E-Car Poster Session. Discount DELTASONE, Members of each team spent time talking with small groups of the students, explaining the goal of the competition (use a chemical reaction to propel a vehicle, and then a second chemical reaction to stop the vehicle, where to buy DELTASONE, as close as possible to a designated target), Cheap DELTASONE no rx, and the reasoning behind that team’s choices of reactions and vehicle design. Following, the high-school students viewed a portion of the competition, buy no prescription DELTASONE online, now knowing how the competition related to chemical engineering having a rooting interest in several of the teams competing.

Between the above two activities, high-school students attended a panel discussion focused on chemical engineering education and careers. DELTASONE from canada, The nine panelists encompassed a wide range of chemical-engineering experiences, including ChE graduate students, professors, DELTASONE images, young professionals, DELTASONE brand name, and more-experienced engineers from industry. The discussion covered many topics of interest to the students, including: why the panelists chose chemical engineering as a career, after DELTASONE, the decision to start a career with a B.S. Where can i order DELTASONE without prescription, degree over pursing grad school, and the importance of mathematics in an engineering career.

One of the volunteers had this to say after the event:

“I … was very impressed by the whole operation.  The Hershey folks were very prepared and engaging, discount DELTASONE. The students were really into it, DELTASONE FOR SALE. The high school students were among the most interested and participating bunches that I have seen in a long time (and I do a lot of high school activities/tours in Athens, DELTASONE without prescription, OH).  It is probably because they have self-selected to spend a Sunday with us as opposed to looking at the activity as simply a way to miss a day of school. I believe that the event was a success and should be continued.”

And, in an email sent after the event, what is DELTASONE, one of the high-school students commented:
“Thanks for a great time learning about chemical engineering. DELTASONE long term, It was very interesting, especially the part where we added water to chocolate which gave a very surprising result. I ended up having a great time.”

Following the event, online buying DELTASONE, several groups within AIChE (SIOC, Buy generic DELTASONE, Education Division, YPC, MAC, buy DELTASONE from mexico, Fuels and Petrochemical Division) expressed interest in forming a committee to make such outreach events a regular occurrence at both the Spring and Annual AIChE meetings. Online buying DELTASONE hcl, With that in mind, watch for the next event in San Antonio in April 2013.

As chemical engineers, we know that, every day, we work on solutions to many of the world’s most critical problems, in areas as diverse as energy production, clean air and water, advanced materials, and  a safe and abundant food supply.

So, let’s keep spreading the message.
