Bull Run Branch February 2024 Dinner Meeting

Associated with  Bull Run Branch

Inspiring the Next Generation of Civil Engineers.  Learn what ASCE and the Bull Run Branch are doing to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) in schools across Northern Virginia.  Presentation by two leaders in STEM will follow an excellent dinner where ASCE Members will learn about the latest Branch and Virginia Section events and activities, including as ASCE prepares for the Premiere of the Cities of the Future.  As shown by the STEM Fair photo doing an experiment from Dream Big, we have an excellent opportunity to engage students and parents in fun but inspirational activities.  

The choices for dinner include a beef, chicken, or vegetarian pasta dish, with coffee or tea, and a delicious dessert.  Dinner will be proceeded by an opportunity to network with fellow Civil Engineers and leaders in the STEM Programs.   One PDH will be awarded. 

Leo Titus Jr., P.E. is the Chief Operating Officer of ECS, Ltd. headquartered in Chantilly, VA.  ECS is a national consulting firm specializing in geotechnical engineering, environmental consulting, building science consulting and construction testing and inspection.

Dr. Myra Sawyers is the Virginia State Director for Cognia, a global nonprofit organization that supports schools in strategic planning and continuous improvement.

ECS and Cognia have recently partnered to support the development of STEM programs in local schools through STEM certification.  They are currently working with one public high school in northern Virginia and are currently expanding the program to other schools in Virginia and North Carolina.

Dr. Sawyers and Mr. Titus will be discussing the concepts of STEM accreditation for K-12 schools; and how private companies can partner with school systems to improve the overall integration and delivery of STEM concepts in the classroom.
