A CES Booth at the Annual ASEE Conference

by Gayle Ermer (germer@calvin.edu)

The CES will be undertaking a new outreach activity this year. The executive committee has approved the rental of a 10’ x 10’ booth at the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) annual conference in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in June. We will be participating in the exposition that runs during the conference, starting on Monday evening, June 22 and extending through Wednesday, June 24. Any CES members who will be attending the ASEE conference or CES members who live close to Montreal are welcome to help staff the booth. We have one or two exhibition-only badges that could be used to allow volunteers to participate without paying an attendance fee. Please contact Gayle Ermer (germer@calvin.edu) if you would like to volunteer. Also, all CES members are encouraged to stop by our booth and show their support. We are looking forward to the opportunity to get our message out to a broader engineering audience!

2021 Christian Engineering Conference

by Derek Schuurman (ds33@calvin.edu)

The next CES conference will be at Azusa Pacific University from Friday, June 25 through Saturday, June 26, 2021. The conference will overlap with the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences (ACMS) conference which runs from Wednesday, June 23 through Saturday, June 26, 2021. The CES/ACMS conference planning committee has identified a candidate for a joint speaker on the Friday evening of the conference and is hoping to confirm that speaker soon. The committee is still seeking an engineering plenary speaker for Saturday during the overlap of the two conferences. If you have any suggestions, please contact any member of the CES board. We plan to issue a call for papers in the late summer or fall.
