Teacher Conference - Fall 2011


On October 15, 2011, Tau Beta Pi Outreach got together and presented our program for 5th grade, middle school, and high school teachers from the Santa Ana School District who came to the University of California, Irvine to hold their conference.  We gave a short presentation on who we are, what we stand for, and what we did for the AISS students during the Summer of 2011.  After the short presentation, the teachers participated in a miniature experiment similar to one conducted by the AISS students.  It was a great time with a lot of fun!




AISS - Summer 2011


During the summer of 2011, Tau Beta Pi - CA Tau at the University of California, Irvine has partnered with Professor Debra Mauzy-Melitz of Developmental and Cell Biology to conduct an outreach project to bring engineering and all of what it has to offer to high school students in the Achievement Institute of Scientific Studies (AISS) Foundation.  We helped bring to these students the true meaning of being an engineer, which is to design and manufacture materials and structures for the advancement of human society through exciting and educational activities such as teamwork in building materials, analysis of failures, and learning to love Engineering in general!  

Tau Beta Pi met with the students on Fridays and the site was alternated between their Delhi Community Center and the University of California, Irvine campus.  Experiments were performed and tests were completed at a later date in order to produce data for analysis and a questioning period in order to determine what went wrong or right.
