DFA Joint-Project, Women Engineers, & Stony Brook Networking

Design for America (DFA) and the New York Rho Chapter of Tau Beta Pi put on a recent Arduino workshop at NYU Tandon MakerSpace. The goal of DFA projects is to fuse collaboration, leadership, and creativity.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (WI) profiled “determined women break(ing) through as engineers” in a recent article. Becca Q. Keller, WI D 2017, is an industrial engineering student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering and spoke about not being fazed by the “all-male environment.”

The article also spoke with professional engineers and those in academia, including Kristina M. Ropella, Ph.D. (WI B ’85), the Engineering Dean at Marquette University. “If we are going to serve the world, we need to look like the world we serve,” Dr. Ropella said.


On March 29, the New York Omicron Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at Stony Brook University, co-hosted a networking event with West Apartments RAs. The “Build Your Network!” event offered an opportunity to meet other TBP members, to participate in Recyclemania, and to engineer structures made from plastic bottles. See the image below from the event, which included some sweet treats. More details can be found on the chapter’s Facebook page.

    Hey guys, you made a mistake on the chapter name for the Arduino Workshop. It was a joint between TBP NY Rho chapter with DFA, NOT Eta chapter. Thank you!
