Today at Ogier Gardens, some members of IEEE helped create new compost for the volunteers that run the garden.
A group of students and myself participated in routine lab maintenance this past weekend. Every now and the lab we work in needs reorganization and cleaning. This gives us the chance to apply six sigma/continuous improvement techniques we learn in school and apply them to our working environment.
Members of UNF IEEE cleared a bed for the Ogier Gardens on Friday, October 19th. UNF IEEE has an ongoing project in the gardens and we like to donate our time when possible to help the volunteers at the Ogier Gardens. Last Friday, they had a bed that was being overgrown with grass and weeds. We learned how to take care of these issues using organic gardening techniques (no harmful or unnatural materials used) and cleared the bed.
Spoke to a group of high school students from First Coast High School about pursuing engineering for their college degrees. Many of the students we spoke to were interested in the medical field. With this in mind, I have learned a good way to speak about engineering is to approach it from the angle that engineers have the ability to improve the lives of many people with their work and there are avenues in engineering that align with the medical field (i.e. biomedical engineering).
Each week I donate 2.5 hours of my time to be available for tutoring and extracurricular electronics teaching. This week I worked with a student providing assistance on Arduino programming for the student's Rube Goldberg component in his introduction to engineering course.
