ASCE November Membership Meeting
Thursday, November 15, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EST)
Topic: University of Dayton ETHOS Program
Presentations on recent excursions to Honduras and La Paz
Speaker: Will Wehner, Milena Pisani, Joe Schmidt, and Kyle Lowry
Abstract: Joe Schmidt, William Wehner, and Milena Pisani spent ten weeks in central Honduras designing and constructing a “Model Home” for the non-profit, Ohio based organization Heart to Honduras (HTH). With support from the ETHOS program and the Dayton chapter of ASCE, the team helped local masons and laborers construct a 20’ x 18’ concrete block home for a family of 8! The students not only gained valuable engineering and project management skills, but also developed culturally, personally, and spiritually through extreme cultural immersion.
Kyle Lowry spent the summer in La Paz and will speak about the company, research, goals, and results of his work.
Lunch: Hot Pasta Deluxe Lunch
