This fall the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction held its 6th annual Student Club Cookout in the courtyard of Bldgs 4 and Bldg 50. The student planning committee consisted of several club officers and members from Osprey Racing, Society of Women Engineers, American Society of Civil Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Society of Women Advancing Technology and Computing, American Concrete Institute and National Society of Black Engineers. The events main intent is to connect with freshman students and help them get acclimated to many clubs that falls under CCEC. The students enjoyed games, food vendors, various other campus departments that tabled and lots of music. The event was also open for other students on campus to check out the myriad of clubs and what they offer. In attendance, we had 331 students: 46 Building Construction management, 49 Civil engineering, 72 Computing, 21 Electrical Engineers, 71 Mechanical Engineers and 72 other students from various majors around campus.

Myself and a construction management student participated in Science Night at Lake Lucina Elementary Schoo. We created a fun math activity and game challenge for the students and it was so much fun that the parents participated as well. I really enjoyed watching the students compete in the math game with each other. I look forward to participating in their Science Night next year.

Kathie @ UNF QUEST Program

The staff of CCEC participated in a Career Services Session with 15 students who participated in the UNF QUEST Program. The QUEST Program is organized by the Department of Diversity Initiatives. The students who participated ranged from business majors to Nursing/PreMed. The students were able to receive a career briefing from the CCEC Construction Management department advisor and the Career Services department about real-word demand for STEM majors, by employers not just locally, but across the country.

Overall, the event met its objective to introduce engineering to 1st through 4th graders. There were a few 5th grade girls in the mix, but all in all it was a fun day for all the students and parents who remained behind to see the different workshops that the college student clubs created for the young students. The students participated in hands-on activities in workshops that focused in the areas of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering.

This was a planning committee meeting for the 2018 Northeast Florida Engineering Week Events Feb 18th - 24th). This week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. During this week there are several events that practicing engineers and their associates in the field participate in to promote engineering. Professors from UNF are nominated for special awards, as well as, engineers in the field. There are a host of events such as a golf tournament; a Kickoff luncheon; a Transportation Summit; Construction Career Days for high schools; Mathcount competition for middle schools an award banquet; a community service day with boy scouts. College students in engineering also are awarded scholarships by engineering firms during this week of events.

UNF was the location for the second FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Programming Workshop for students on FTC teams who needed training on programming their robots for the upcoming competition season. Approximately 12 students and their parents signed up to attend the training which was conducted by two of CCEC's engineering alumni students. Who were volunteering through the Renaissance Jax nonprofit organization who is the affiliate partner for FIRST. The students learned how to use JavaScript to program their computers to run their robots. The students were in grades 7th - 12th. The students also received a briefing from the outreach coordinator on CCEC programs and opportunities to visit campus and tour the labs as well as participate in events that are hosted by CCEC.
