HIGHLIGHTS FROM MONDAY:
Day One kicked off with a plenary address by Purdue University president and former Indiana governor Mitch Daniels, who has championed a bold expansion of the school’s engineering program. During the session, President Ken Galloway presented the 2014 ASEE President’s Award to Ioannis Miaoulis and the National Center for Technological Literacy at the Museum of Science, Boston, for the innovative use of print, broadcast, or electronic media to encourage K-12 students to pursue engineering careers and to influence public opinion about the critical role that engineering plays in today’s technology-driven society. He also recognized several national high school STEM competition winners, who later did demos of their projects at the new Focus on Innovation Pavilion sponsored by PBS/American Experience. Participants included:
- Issac Kim from North Hollywood High School, 2014 Winner of the Air Force Association Cyberpatriot Competition.
- Carmel Fiscko and Rachel Dunkin from High Tech High School in San Diego, 2013 winner of the Chairman’s Award, US FIRST Robotics Competition.
- Katelyn Sweeney from Natick High School in Massachusetts, 2013 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams Grant Awardee.
- Gerald Meixiong from Lakeside High School in Georgia, 2014 winner of the Siemens Foundation Competition
- Kate Randolph and Mallory Miller from Xavier College Preparatory School in Indiana, 2014 honorees from Engineering Programs in Community Service (EPICS), Purdue University EPICS
The Focus on Innovation Pavilion also featured the Engineering Map of America, a visual, crowd-sourced, and interactive resource created in partnership with ASEE and PBS’s AMERICAN EXPERIENCE that spotlights some of the most significant engineering, engineering education, and engineering technology education projects in the United States.
Motorsports and robotics fans cheered on student teams from as far away as Virginia’s Tidewater Community College race their autonomous vehicles around the track, Indy 500-style, in the Two-Year College Division’s annual competition.
The Focus on Exhibits Lunch and a lemonade social provided excellent opportunities to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and explore the learning technologies and other engineering education resources on display.
Monday wrapped up with the annual Awards Ceremony. Sponsored by Dassault Systèmes and Clemson University, the event recogned national and Society award winners, new ASEE Fellows, best paper authors, and the 2014 Outstanding Teaching Award recipient.
