Dear ASQ Pittsburgh Members,
Youth Outreach: Engineer the Future at Carnegie Science Center
Continuing the great work created by Cas Welch and fostered by Michelle Labash for the Youth Outreach program, ASQ Pittsburgh Section actively participated in the 2015 Engineer the Future Event at the Carnegie Science Center. In spite of freezing temperatures and blizzard conditions, the ASQ volunteers, in true Pittsburgh fashion, bundled up and got engaged with area children to encourage learning and benefiting from quality. The children were given the opportunity to experience quality by building either an origami cup or a frog. The quality emphasis was to follow instructions, test the work along the way against a standard and have a working product when completed.
Mike Sadusky, Matt Reitz, Jyothsna Nunna, Peter Blattner and John Erinc volunteered and participated with hands on activities for the day. The volunteers engaged the children and encouraged them to build the frog or cup and to provide feedback as part of the quality process. As part of the continual improvement aspect, Peter Blattner created a competition for the Origami frogs to determine farthest leaps, which was a big hit with the children.
Overall, the Youth Outreach participation was a success, thanks in great part to the volunteers participation, ideas and enthusiasm.
