Calling All Engineers
The Chattanooga Engineers Club meets for lunch each week to share information across engineering disciplines.
The organization formed in 1924 and includes engineers from a variety of professions. Each Monday at noon club members enjoy lunch and a presentation with guest speakers. Membership levels include student, associate and full membership.
In addition to the weekly luncheons the Chattanooga Engineers Club promotes education through several programs. The Chattanooga Regional Science and Engineering Fair provides an opportunity for area students to study science concepts and demonstrate their knowledge through competition. Winners continue to State and National competitions. The club promotes engineering through the Chattanooga Robotics club where middle school students build and compete robots. On the elementary school level the Chattanooga Engineer Club promotes science and engineering using Legos to build robots.
This interview features 2013 President Jerry McClanahan and Vice President Kelli Richardson. You can find the Chattanooga Engineers Club on facebook or stop by the Doubletree on Chestnut St. at noon on Mondays and meet them for lunch.
