Members of our YMF Group attended the 2020 Nevada Future Cities Competition on January 11, 2020. This competition encourages our next generation of engineers, 6th to 8th grade, to identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test, and build a futuristic city. Our members were able to volunteer as judges and the ASCE YMF Group was able to award the “Best Futuristic City”. This was a successful event and our group is looking forward to participating in future events that empower our future generation of engineers.

ASCE Las Vegas YMF hosted the first FE Review at UNLV. This class provided study material and practice problems to UNLV students. The students were able to get one on one experience about how the FE computerized exam worked by providing them tutorial videos and few practice problems that previous professionals encounter while taking the exam. This was a successful event because once the review was done, students were able to take home a practice problem booklet and ASCE YMF raffle two calculators randomly to students who attend the class. We are hoping to team with UNLV and the UNLV ASCE Student chapter in 2020 to provide once again a FE review class. #FEPASS

The Calico Basin Hike trail located outside of Red Rock Canyon boasts colorful rock formations, springs, and at the heart of the desert landscape in the Valley, a beautiful meadow.
With 14 attendees, the event was packed with laughter and an overall great time!
