Future City® Philadelphia is hosting its second annual Engineering Fair for middle school students and teachers on Saturday, October 26 in Newtown Square, PA! APA PA SE has started its search for four (4) volunteers to manage its Exhibitor booth. Last year our volunteers engaged students in a hands-on land use activity to encourage them to incorporate city planning principles into their projects.
The theme for this year’s competition is Clean Water: Tap Into Tomorrow. The APA PA SE organizers will prepare materials and develop a hands-on activity for the day. Volunteers will receive instructions in advance and have the opportunity to provide input on the activity. A representative from the APA PA SE Engagement Committee will be on site to help volunteers set up and breakdown.
This is an exciting opportunity to share your knowledge and inspire children to think creatively about planning! The event details are shown below. Volunteers can pick between two shifts: 7:30 AM to 9:45 AM or 9:45 AM to 12:00 PM. Please fill out this Google form if you are interested in volunteering and/or have questions about this opportunity. Volunteers will be selected on a first come, first served basis, and preference will be given to APA members.
