Science Unwrapped and connecting with the community
If you've been following USU EWB over the last few years, you know we have a long lasting relationship with the USU Science Unwrapped lecture series. It is organized by the USU College of Science and is a great way to connect the community of Cache Valley and the field of S.T.E.M. through the wide array of participation by many different groups. At each Science Unwrapped, there is a featured lecturer and a community event after the lecture. The best part? People are encouraged to bring their kids in order to show them the limitless possibilities of science.
Our chapter loves the chance to connect with our community. It is how we show people the good things we do for the world and it is a chance to give back to the community who supports us. At the latest Science Unwrapped, our chapter taught young engineers the concepts of bridge building by constructing bridges with paper and adding weights to test their strength.
Being able to give back to the community is always a fulfilling experience for our chapter members because of the support we receive from the community. It is also a way to become examples for young students who want to go into the field of engineering and those who want to go on to make a difference in the world by giving back themselves. We always look forward to Science Unwrapped and we hope to see you all at the next one which is held next semester!
