BYU student engineers score several firsts at national competition

Brigham Young University’s Technology and Engineering Education program recently placed first in five of seven competitions at the 2012 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association Conference held in Long Beach, Calif.

In addition to taking first place, two BYU students were voted in to national office for the organization. Blake Hoover, a senior from Midway, Utah, was voted in as president–elect, while junior Ashley Alley from Pocatello, Idaho, will serve as reporter.

Each year, the TEE program sends a small group of students to compete in various events, including quiz bowl, robotics, teaching, transportation and video production/communications.

“We take our students to these competitions to become better professionals and teachers so that when they graduate they have had many experiences in developing lessons,” said Steven Shumway, a technology and engineering education professor at BYU.

“They work together designing and building solutions,” said Shumway. “They are very good at preparing lesson material and presenting it in a professional manner.”
