TSPE MATHCOUNTS Call for Volunteers

MATHCOUNTS® is fast approaching. This year marks the 36th anniversary of the national competition supporting STEM education at the middle school level.

Date: February 2, 2019  8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Location: UT J.J. Pickle Research Center Commons Building #137 (10100 Burnet Road, Austin TX 78758) 

Please consider volunteering your time and talent to support the 125+ middle school students who will be participating in a series of fun and engaging mathematics contests. Volunteers are needed between 7:30 a.m. (proctors arrive before event registration) and 1:30 p.m. (a few volunteers will be need for clean-up). If you cannot commit to the full event, we welcome your support as there are many activities like staffing the registration table, delivering materials, or answering questions and providing directions that will not last the full time. Volunteers will be provided a MATHCOUNTS t-shirt along with free snacks and lunch.

This gathering of eager, bright middle school students is a joy to attend and you will find the time you spend volunteering at the event truly rewarding. Please e-mail jnett@ci.buda.tx.us if you would like to volunteer or if you require additional information about the program. Also, please feel free to pass this invitation on to your co-workers and associates.

UT AUSTIN MENTORING PROGRAM

The Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering is recruiting volunteers from the ASCE Austin Branch to serve as mentors for seniors in the civil engineering program. Serving as a mentor is an excellent opportunity to assist with public service projects in our community, identify potential new hires for your company, get your company name out in the local community, and earn three professional development hours (PDHs) for licensure.
