first_img The Kiltwalk, the Scottish charity that runs sponsored walks and treks to raise funds for children’s charities, has chosen Virgin Money Giving as its official fundraising partner.All the charity’s events, whether in Scotland or abroad, involve the participants wearing kilts.Set up in 2011, The Kiltwalk, a Scottish charitable incorporated organisation (SCIO), has secured support from The Sunday Post, including a mascot featuring “Scotland’s most famous wee boy, Oor Wullie”, a cartoon character from the newspaper.Carey McEvoy, Founder and CEO of The Kiltwalk explained why they had chosen Virgin Money Giving:“At a time when every pound is important both to charities and to the people who make the donations, we are delighted to be teaming up with Virgin Money Giving.“Its not-for profit business model means a low two per cent commission compared to five per cent with other some online fundraising platforms. This difference equates to potentially £120,000-a-year to The Kiltwalk and our partner charities, and Virgin is a brand that we will be proud to work alongside.”Cary McEvoy of The Kiltwalk and Jo Burnett of Virgin Money Giving  43 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Registration set for engineering camp

first_img By Odessa American – May 28, 2021 Registration set for engineering camp Facebook Facebook Twitter The University of Texas Permian Basin will host engineering camps for middle and high school students this summer — and it will be in person.Anveeksh Koneru, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, was the camp coordinator last year and Mesut Yurukcu, a post-doctoral researcher in the College of Engineering, is the coordinator this year.The middle school session is July 19-23 and the high school will be July 26-30. Hours for both are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the UTPB engineering building off State Highway 191 near the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center in Midland.Registration deadline is noon June 18. Contact Mindy Rogers at [email protected], or call 432-552-3431. The cost is $295 per student; lunch and snacks are included; and limited scholarships are available upon review.The camp is funded by the UTPB College of Engineering and XTO Energy. It will be kept socially distant and masks will be required.Projects will include solar and wind power, gears, pulleys and belt drives, Newton’s laws, reactor simulation and Stirling engine, Ohm’s law, coding with Python and others.The camp was conducted virtually last year, but people were still interested in it. Koneru said students were self-motivated and didn’t have to be pushed.Koneru said they wanted to divide the camp into mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering to give students the experiences of those areas.They want the students to have fun while they learn.“It’s very fundamental and very, very basic, so without any prior knowledge in this the students should still be able to get some knowledge about how certain things work,” Koneru said.One example would be learning how a wind turbine works.Yurukcu said they are interested in future engineers, but also students who want to learn new things.Koneru said they hope to spark interest in engineering and show off the $55 million facilities and realize that UTPB is a viable option for studying the field.Courtney Wardlaw, XTO public and government affairs advisor Permian Division, said they are excited the camp will be held in person this year.“… We thought this was a really great way to partner with the university for hands-on experience to get them excited about STEM fields,” Wardlaw said.She added that research over the years shows that the younger you can get youngsters started, especially girls, the more likely they are to continue in STEM fields. The camp experience also gives students a chance to experience the fields outside a classroom setting.

Chip seal preservation begins next week on S.R. 46, U.S. 421 in Ripley, Dearborn and Decatur Counties

first_imgDearborn, Decatur, and Ripley Counties— Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews will begin chip seal operations as early as Monday, June 8, on S.R. 46 in Ripley and Dearborn Counties. Work will take place between S.R. 101 at Penntown and S.R. 1 near St. Leon. Crews plan to start work on U.S. 421 mid-week in Ripley and Decatur Counties from just north of S.R. 229 in Napoleon to the Sand Creek Bridge in Greensburg.Chip seal operations typically last around three to four days per location depending upon weather. Work is completed under lane closures with flagging to prevent damage to both vehicles and the roadway. During operations, existing pavement is coated with liquid asphalt, which seals cracks and provides waterproof protection. This extends the service life of the roadway and lowers maintenance costs. Once the seal coat is complete, loose aggregate is applied and then swept from the road. After a curing period, crews will return to fog seal the new driving surface.Chip seal is a cost-effective pavement preservation technique that is utilized across the state of Indiana, saving an estimated six to 14 dollars in taxpayer expenditures for every dollar invested in extending the life of a roadway.Motorists should slow down, watch for stopped traffic and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather dependent and schedules are subject to change.last_img read more
