The sixth annual Tau Beta Pi Day was a huge success thanks to our awesome Tau Bates! There was local news coverage at several events. Some great videos and images as well. A compilation will be published later this month on the TBP website. For now enjoy these images and videos and a big THANK YOU for promoting your Engineering Honor Society:

In February, Clemson University hosted 138 second-grade students for an Engineering Expo. Activities such as paper airplanes and shot straws were aimed at introducing the youngsters to the STEM fields.
The successful event was a joint effort of 12 organizations on campus, and according to the news article the South Carolina Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi was key to “making this event happen.”
