Hey engineers!! Thanks to all who supported E-Week! There was a lot that went down, from our Paper Airplane and House of Cards Contests, to Community Day on Saturday. There were prizes such as an Arduino starter kit and light-up water-fountain speakers, ’cause that’s how we roll! Looking forward to seeing y’all in the upcoming months, and be sure to pay attention, because we’re just getting started!
Here’s Rhyzl (pronounced: Rizzle) and David at E-Week on Community Day:
Then things got a little crazy!!
Shiva and Rhyzl are just super excited about engineering. And we’re planning on introducing more interactive table sets soon. Keep an eye out and we’ll see you around!!

We hope you all enjoyed your break and fabulous holiday festivities! Well, Spring’s here, the grass is green (sort of), the flowers are blooming (almost), and the new year is well under way. That all means it’s time to get our SWE on! We’re shooting for a greater membership and are really looking forward to having you at our meetings this semester. Get in early by signing up through the New Member Application, and if you’re super excited about STEM like we are, you can fill out our New Officer Application. We have some big things planned for the next few months and we can’t wait to share them with you!! Keep a lookout for our first meeting/social– we’ll post details soon. See you then!!!

Our next meeting is a session on surgical robotics, with a demo on haptic devices (haptic has to do with touch, so it’s almost like a smartphone…)! ;P
And since we’re providing such a super-legit and awe-inspiring meeting, you should come to ECSS 2.412 next Wednesday, 19 November at 8:00pm.
We hope your semester is going well! See you there!!
