Plot Points is a podcast by ASCE that tells the robust story of civil engineering one episode at a time. The podcast is in Season 3 and is looking for answers for their first Member Memo question of the season: "What were your impressions of civil engineering when you were in high school?"
If interested in a chance to be featured on future episode of the podcast, record your answer as a voice memo on your phone (60 seconds or so) and email it to ascenews (at ) asce.org with "Member Memo" in the subject line! I submitted an answer to one of the featured questions during Season 1 so feel free to respond here or message me with any questions about the process.
If not interested in recording a voice memo for the podcast, I would love to hear about your experiences in this thread! As the current K-12 Outreach Co-chair for my local Philadelphia YMF section, I love to hear about others impression of Civil Engineers back when they in grades K-12 and how they have changed since you entered the profession. Also, here is the link to the first episode in which this Member Memo question was asked: https://news.asce.org/asce-plot-points-season-3-episode-1-bring-your-dog-to-work-day/
