2017 FORT WORTH MATHCOUNTS CHAPTER COMPETITION

Do you want to help with the 2017 MATHCOUNTS Competition?

 We are looking for volunteers for the 2017 Fort Worth MATHCOUNTS Chapter Competition. The Fort Worth Texas Society of Professional Engineers (TSPE) Chapter coordinates this annual chapter competition where 6th, 7th and 8th grade students challenge their mathematic skills. After several months of coaching, participating schools select students to compete individually or as part of a team in our local chapter competition. This year our chapter competition will be held at Tarrant County College Riverside Campus in Fort Worth on February 4, 2017.

We need volunteers to help the event run smoothly on the day of the competition. Volunteers will help proctor & grade tests. The commitment time is around half of a day starting around 8:00 a.m. A light breakfast and lunch will be included as well as a souvenir t-shirt.

This is a great opportunity to meet and network with other engineers as well as introduce the engineering community to the students involved at the competition. This competition cannot be successful without your help.

If you and/or your friends are interested in participating in this fun and exciting event, please contact Holly Ahumada (hahumada@halff.com).  Please let me know if you would prefer to be a proctor or grader. I can also be reached at (817) 764-7437. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions!

Thank you for your support,

Future City Competition North Texas Region 2017

Judging, Mentoring & Volunteer Opportunities

The Future City Competition, a NSPE 4-part multi-disciplinary competition which asks students to design a future city by employing critical thinking, teamwork, research and problem-solving skills has begun across the North Texas Region. The 12-14 yr. olds design a city using SimCity software, a table-top scale city model built with recycled materials; write a research essay & abstract  and will provide a 7-minute Team verbal Presentation defending their vision before a panel of judges in January. 

This year’s theme: The Power of Public Spaces. We once again have more than 50 schools working hard on their city concepts and the solution to renovating underused areas of their cities into vibrant public spaces serving the diverse needs of their citizenry. So, please take a minute now and sign up … then pass this message along to your friends and colleagues and encourage them to join us.

We are looking for judges for:

-   Virtual City – judging online, on your own schedule, at your computer. December-January.

-   City Essay – judging online, on your own schedule, at your computer. December-January.

-   Model & Presentation – judging on-site at UT Arlington, interacting with the student teams. 28 January 2017.

-   Special Awards – judging on-site at UT Arlington, interacting with team. Judging for specific, sponsored category awards. 28 January 2017.

And all kinds of volunteers for the day-of … 28 January at UT Arlington.

Future City Junior also needs judges – NTX pioneered the Junior competition to introduce 4-5th graders to engineering. The juniors are submitting two deliverables that require scoring: essay and model. The models will be judged at UT Arlington, in the afternoon, following the preliminary round for the middle school competition (on 28 January). So, if you are going to be judging the models and presentations in the morning, and can stay for the afternoon, please sign up.
