More than 8,000 people attended about 200 free events across the U.S. on September 24 for the second annual national SteelDay. Hosted by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), its members, and other affiliated organizations, SteelDay is the structural steel industry’s largest networking and educational event for the design and construction community. Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, this year’s SteelDay nearly doubled its number of in-person attendees (not including live webinar attendance) and added dozens of event locations.
As part of the celebration, AISC Education sponsored the second annual Student Photo Competition. Students were invited to submit a set of three photos demonstrating the theme of SteelDay: “Interact. Learn. Build.” The winning 2010 submissions come from Jiun-Wei Lai, a student at the University of California Berkeley.
Be sure to check the next few Friday Steel Shots for the other winning photos.
