The STEM Committee was conceived and approved by the Texas Section Board of Directors in 2014. The vision has been to incorporate Civil Engineering into STEM initiatives and programs throughout the state. Some branches have participated locally in events, but can ASCE do more and what partnerships are in place to help? We will introduce you to Savita Raj, the Executive Director of TAME, and discuss what can be done to expand on the current relationship between ASCE Texas Section and TAME.
