This month you will not want to miss our guest speaker, Mr. Steven Duong, AICP, Senior Urban Planner with AECOM, on the Hyperloop Texas Project.
Hyperloop is a new way to move people or things anywhere in the world quickly, safely, efficiently, on-demand and with minimal impact to the environment. The system uses electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle through a tube in a low pressure environment. The autonomous vehicle levitates slightly above the track and glides at faster-than-airline speeds over long distances. Hyperloop eliminates direct emissions, noise, delay, weather concerns and pilot error. It’s the next mode of transportation.
Thursday, June 15, 12:00 pm, Canyon Creek Country Club, Richardson, TX
In addition, you will not want to miss the installation of our newly elected Preston Trail Officers as they take on their new roles. We look forward to seeing you there!
Congratulations to Murphy, Rice, and Renner Middle Schools who ranked in the top three schools during the Regional Mathcounts Competition on February 4, 2017. Six teams and 5 individuals from the Preston Trail Area will be advancing to the State Competition in Austin, TX!
Thanks for those of you who came out to our Happy Hour Event last night at Katy Trail Ice House Outpost in Plano… We enjoyed some drinks, food, and even some TSPE/NSPE trivia!
Weren’t able to join us? Be on the lookout for future happy hours hosted by the Preston Trail Chapter.
TSPE Members and non-Members:
Two more opportunities are available this year to help out with Career Days, and we’re in need of volunteers. If you’re able to help out, please take a look at the locations and times below:
HENDRICK MS (PLANO) ON 11/18/16 (8:15 am to 12:00 pm)
SELLERS MS (GARLAND) ON 12/1/16 (8:15 am to 11:30 am)
This is a great opportunity to reach out to young students and inform them about what we do and how cool it is to be an engineer. If you haven’t volunteered before NO WORRIES – we have all the resources you will need. It usually takes only a small time out of your work day.
The schedule is shown below. If interested in participating, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (972) 960-4466 and specify when and with which school you would be interested in volunteering.
