Ticketed event: $70.00
The Community Engagement and Construction Divisions are sponsoring a one-day workshop to engage in community service and learn from service-learning experts in engineering. Participants will work with EPICS Purdue and LSU to help with a playground build in Baton Rouge at a local elementary school on Saturday, June 25th. LSU has a very successful service-learning program led by Marybeth Lima, and this day of service is a great opportunity to better understand the steps taken to promote safety, health, and play in local communities. This workshop will provide an opportunity not only to engage hands-on in a community service project, but also to learn from experts about the development and execution of service learning in engineering courses. We will also take the opportunity to discuss what the CED has planned for a service project in Columbus for ASEE 2017.
The workshop fee is $60, which covers transportation to and from Baton Rouge from New Orleans, lunch, and support for students to participate in the workshop. Students may apply for partial scholarships after registering. Contact Nathan Canney (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
