  • Apply to be a F18 Chair!

    Chair applications for the upcoming semester are open until August 30th at 11:59 PM.

    Being a chair is a great way to earn your leadership credit and have influence over the chapter without having as much of a time commitment as an officer. Want to improve our professional development for students interested in graduate school? Interact with company representatives? Design the next t-shirt or get more TBP swag? Then we have a chair position for you!

    If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me or any of the officers!

    Apply here if you are interested.

Upcoming Events

  • Cub Scouts Day

    Cub Scouts Day is an activity hosted by TBP that allows local Cub Scouts to come to campus and earn their Engineering Adventure badge. It brings in scout packs from across the state of Michigan every semester. We teach the scouts about material related to the practice of engineering in a fun environment through numerous activities, including an electronics module, a bridge module, a catapult module, and the most popular part: designing a landing craft for an egg drop! We also had the Scouts fill out a questionnaire that obligated them to speak to several different types of engineers on what kind of things they do and projects they work on. Michigan Gamma is known nationally for hosting Cub Scouts Day, we hope you will join us in making this semester's edition of this great event the best it can be!

    If you would like to volunteer but are unable to work a full shift, please still sign up and David or Benson ASAP at cubscoutsday@umich.edu.Excited Cub Scouts watch the final Egg Drop competition where the eggs are dropped from 4 floors up in contraptions that the scouts built.
