  • Jerome Murray spoke about the "Future Engineers Day", an opportunity that about 300 students from high schools have to get introduced to the engineering field. A half day students tour going engineering facilities and/or companies such as Garmin and PGE. On the other half, students engage with representatives from engineering colleges. Mostly sponsored by ASCE, their committee is looking for new partnership and will ask support from IEEE Oregon Section ($500 or $1000) later in the year. Their committee will have the first meeting in October when the topic will be brought for discussion and support approval.
  • Ed Perkins suggested used the series as a professional development opportunity like a PACE kind of activity. Maybe get a match from PACE for the money that the Section is investing.
