COUNCIL ON FOREST ENGINEERING
Share your passion for engineering with students! Sign up as a Classroom Presenter for National Engineers Month!
The Oregon Forest Resources Institute is partnering with the Business Education Compact (BEC) to participate in NEM, an annual event that celebrates engineering by bringing engineer volunteer presenters into the classroom. To register, follow instructions below to logon to the NEM Volunteer System and request a classroom. The BEC provides ready-made presentations, an experiment library, and grade-level tips—all available on the system to support your participation.
See the NEM 2009 Volunteer Guide for further instructions.
