Cheryl Chapman, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor in Civil & Environmental Engineering
Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) is a service-learning, team-based design course at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology that brings together students from multiple disciplines and academic levels to work together on long-term projects that benefit the community. Non-profit partners work with the university to identify real-world projects and support the student teams throughout the life of the project. Dr. Chapman will provide an overview of the program, current projects and opportunities for becoming a community partner with the university.
STEAM Café is a series of free informal talks by South Dakota School of Mines & Technology faculty and staff, as well as visiting experts. The series is a partnership between the university, South Dakota Public Broadcasting and Hay Camp Brewing Company.
An acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, STEAM Café is held at 6 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month, at Hay Camp. A food truck will be available at each STEAM Café for meal purchase, and handcrafted beer will be available for purchase from Hay Camp.
