2010 AIChE National Conference

Six members attended the 2010 AIChE National Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah this last semester.  Although the team did not qualify to compete in the national ChE Car competition, we enjoyed viewing the posters and watching the competition.

While at the conference, members also attended multiple AIChE workshops that ranged from  chapter recruiting tips to hosting regional conferences.  The latter was very useful as the SDSMT ChE Car Team and the AIChE Chapter are already working together to plan the 2012 AIChE Rocky Mountain Regional Conference at SDSMT.

The team enjoyed Salt Lake City and used any free time to tour the city.  One highlight was touring the capitol building (above).

One of Salt Lake City’s greatest attractions is Temple Square.  The team took multiple free tours offered in this area (below). 

The team took advantage of the social activities organized for the conference.  We were able to meet and network with students from other schools and exchange ideas and experiences while participating in fun activities such as mechanical bull riding and sumo wrestling.
