For students and teachers, NASCC: The Steel Conference can serve as a spring break of sorts–albeit one where steel, not sand and sun, is the focus.
In addition to the dozens of specialized sessions on buildings and bridges that will take place at NASCC in St. Louis, April 17-19, this year’s conference also offers special educational opportunities for students and educators.
The third annual Students Connecting with Industry Sessions (SCIS) program will be held at the conference on Thursday, April 18, from 10 a.m. - 2:15 p.m. John Hooper of Magnusson Klemencic Associates and Karl Frank of Hirschfeld Industries (an AISC member/AISC certified fabricator) will present a special session titled, “Tips for Starting Your Career.” The day will also include lunch, a tour of the exhibit hall and the “Direct Connect” session where students can interact one-on-one with about 40 key representatives from the structural steel industry.
For AISC student members, registration to NASCC and the SCIS program is complimentary. Students who attend the entire SCIS program will receive a complimentary ticket to Thursday night’s conference dinner at the City Museum, as well as up to $175 in travel reimbursement. Registration is required and can be done online at www.aisc.org/nascc by selecting the “Student Session” option in the “a la carte pricing” portion of the registration form.
The Educator Session will be held on Wednesday, April 17, from 8 a.m. to noon and include presentations on “Bridge Plate Girder Design by the Numbers,” “Bridge Design for Economy of Construction” and “Bridge Design for Aesthetics.” Registration for this complimentary session is required and can also be done at the conference website by selecting the “Educator Session” in the “a la carte pricing” portion of the registration form.
