IEEE Banquet - Mars Exploration - Open to Public
5:00 PM
Clarion Inn Copper King Convention Center
Welcome to 2018! The Western Montana Section of IEEE is pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting our annual Banquet on Thursday, February 15!! We’ll be taking advantage of the remodel done at the Clarion Copper King and are excited to see how the new digs work out. We’ll be bringing back Steve Lee who will be speaking on all things MARS!!! Steve Lee is a MOST welcome speaker: the last time he was here, he had a phenomenal presentation; it was well-received and crazy interesting!! Now, he’s got updates! We’re up to 6 (SIX!!!) spacecraft orbiting Mars and 2 (TWO!!!) rovers! Steve is planning on updating us all on some of the developments/findings of all these spacecraft and rovers and he may share a bit about the Maven mission that is measuring the electrical activity of the upper atmosphere or he might also talk about the seismic mission that will launch in May. So many possibilities…!!!

This event is FAMILY FRIENDLY!!! Bring your cousins! Bring your spouses! Bring your kids! Bring your neighbors! Steve is an engaging speaker and he always has lots of great photos and video clips…What a great way to share your joy of engineering with your family and friends!

Not only will Steve speak, but we’ll also have a presentation of Engineer Of The Year!!!

Please be sure to RSVP (a free drink ticket to you if you RSVP by Feb 8!!!!) through the IEEE website at: https://meetings.vtools.ieee.org/m/158384

Throughout the evening, we’ll be giving away three door prizes; you must be present to win.

Please message Chelsea if these costs are prohibitive and you’d like to go, there may be avenues we can explore.

I really hope to have a good turnout for Steve; he’s going to have a killer presentation and it will be super informative and interesting.
