Beach Buddies Founder Bill Dale Visits YSU!

Bill DaleBill Dale is the founder of the Beach Buddies organization that takes charge of cleaning up litter on beaches. He was awarded the British Empire Medal by Queen Elizabeth II in 2017 for “Services to the Marine Environment.”

Bill Dale started a career in journalism at the age of 18. He founded the Isle of Man Gazette in 1985 and The Manx Independent in 1987. He left to start a career in freelance writing, public relations and photography in 1990. He launched The Southern Chronicle in 2011 and the Northwestern Chronicle in 2014.

Bill then founded Beach Buddies in October 2006 where he first officially collected debris in January 2017. It started with two volunteers and five dogs, and it now has 8,000 volunteers and, sadly, only one dog remains. He was appointed assistant commentator to Ian Cannell for the official Tynwald Ceremony in 2006 and appointed Sole Commentator in 2016.

Bill has been a regular guest speaker (about his career and the Beach Buddies organization) since 2013. He is currently in the middle of developing a new education program in schools that is designed to raise awareness of how careless littering introduces severe problems to the environment and wildlife populations.

His various other career experiences include operating the rowing boat ferry across Peel Harbor to Peel Castle in the 1970s to joiner, bricklayer, electrician, plumber, golfer, footballer, skier, basking shark watcher, and so many more!

Bill Dale provided a free, open lecture for the Youngstown community on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. This date also happened to be Bill’s birthday so people that came to his lecture were able to wish him the best on his special day. Bill’s visit to the USA has brought a lot of attention to his efforts in the Isle of Man, which is his home station. You can click here to view the news story that was published about his trip. There is also a video interview that is available for you to watch here about his various efforts with Beach Buddies.

While Bill Dale was at YSU, he spoke on the marine environment and how littering affects the environment. He showed the audience pictures of animals that were caught up in various types of litter that a human just threw out their car window without a second thought. Some of the animals he showed us were birds, sea turtles, seals, fish, and even non-marine life such as hedgehogs. He urged that people must stop littering because of how much it is damaging the wildlife and environment around the world.

Tau Beta Pi Welcomes Fall Initiates!

Tau Beta Pi InitiatesTau Beta Pi has initiated their new members this fall! The Tau Beta Pi Association is the oldest engineering honor society in the United States and the second oldest collegiate honor society in America. It is made of honors engineering students who have shown a history of academic achievement as well as a commitment to personal and professional integrity.

“Our purpose is to uphold to qualities of excellence and integrity of engineering,” said Tayah Turocy, current president of Tau Beta Pi. “We strive to be role models, achieve academic success, and hold leadership positions while being connected to a large network of engineers.”

Tau Beta Pi is one of the multiple Ohio Lambda Chapters at YSU. They have a similar process of initiation to the other chapters on campus. They truly celebrate the hard work of students. The group supports dedicated, hardworking, and successful engineers.

“After our initiation this week of 41 initiates, we now have almost 60 active members in our Ohio Lambda chapter. Tau Beta Pi is a society that one must be invited to join. A student must be of junior status or above to be considered,” said Tayah. “A student is eligible if they are pursuing an engineering degree and are in the top 1/8th of their junior class, top 1/5th of their senior class, or top 1/5th of their graduate class.”

Tau Beta Pi hosts several events each year. Their two main events are their fall and spring initiation. Their initiation process is very involved.

“Candidates go through an interview process with the current members, and they are elected by vote,” said Tayah. “After being elected to join, candidates go through an initiation ceremony, take a group photo in front of our symbol, the “bent,” and are invited to celebrate with their guests at a banquet.”

Additionally, Tau Beta Pi hosts Engineer’s Week. This is a weeklong competition in spring between civil engineering, chemical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and mathematics students. The events of the week range from paper airplanes to duct tape a team member to a wall to penny wars.

Throughout the year, Tau Beta Pi also holds a Pi day event, futures for engineers’ sessions. If you’ve seen people walking around campus with laptop stickers that look like Ohio and have a “Y” for Youngstown, that’s also Tau Beta Pi!

“Many people do not know anything about Tau Beta Pi when they are asked to join, but it is the largest engineering society in the world with over 580,000 members,” said Tayah. “Also, we just had our largest initiate class in 17 years!”

For more information about the organization, visit www.tbp.org. To keep up with Tau Beta Pi’s events on campus, you can also follow them on their Facebook page: YSU Tau Beta Pi Ohio Lambda Chapter.

Although a student must be invited to join, it is never too early or too late to think about joining. Freshman and sophomore students can look forward to being invited in the future by keeping their grades up, and juniors and seniors can improve their grades to be asked in a future semester. If thinking about attending grad school, students can look into how that school’s chapter operates. For more detailed questions, contact Tayah Turocy at tdturocy@student.ysu.edu.

Silly Science Sunday 2017

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Silly Science Sunday was such a great way to kick off the 7 Days of STEM! The event was held on September 17, 2017 in the streets around OhWOW Children’s Center in downtown Youngstown. Various events happened throughout the day from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Children could watch the Ronald McDonald Magic Show, Bear Hunt, Dry Ice Pringles Can Blow Up, Minute to Win It, Elephant Toothpaste, Robot Demonstration, and Watermelon Blow Up.

The biggest event of the day was the Beach Ball Drop and T-Shirt Cannon at 1:00. The Beach Ball Drop was organized to beat the world record for the most amount of beach balls in the air at one time. The balls were dumped from the second floor of OhWOW into the street below.

YSU STEM had a tent on the street in front of OhWOW. There were various set ups that children could interact with. They could look at the sun with solar glasses or try on kaleidoscope glasses. In the rest of the tent children could see fat in the human body and learn about its formations, information about the planetarium as well as puzzles, spin a wheel to win a prize, and make their own “substance” from dish soap and corn syrup.

For more information on Silly Science Sunday, contact OhWOW Children’s Center at info@OHWOWKids.org or email us at STEMNews@ysu.edu.

STEM Students Explored Career Opportunities This Month!

Constructor for a Day – 2017

Robert J. Korenic, Youngstown State University Associate Professor of Civil and Construction Engineering Technology, in collaboration with the Ohio Contractors Association (OCA) hosted the 25th annual “Constructor for A Day” program.  The event is a proven way to strengthen ties between contractors and students attending YSU who are majoring in Civil and Construction Engineering Technology as well as Civil and Environmental Engineering.  Students met at the A.P. O’Horo Company on Belmont Avenue and then toured local job sites (such as bridges on Interstate 80, the Niles Wastewater Treatment Plant, Mahoning Valley Sanitary District facility and more).  The program allows students to see firsthand practical applications of their education.  It also provides students the opportunity to network with area contractors and to see the various areas of the field that are available to work in with a degree in Civil and Construction Engineering Technology or Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Ward Beecher Planetarium Opening Weekend 2017

Have you ever been to the Ward Beecher Planetarium? This year our planetarium is celebrating its 50-year anniversary! It’s even more exciting that over the summer the planetarium staff have been working hard to bring some exciting changes for the public.

The planetarium has recently purchased a new video projection system with assistance of a generous donation from the Beecher Foundation.

“We have a brand new SkySkan Definiti video system – we will put it through its paces and show you what you can expect for years to come,” said planetarium lecturer Tiffany Wolbrecht.

Planetarium Opening Weekend

The new addition will allow the planetarium to revolutionize their shows. It provides viewers with a brighter and higher resolution as well as a higher contrast. If that doesn’t already sound great, the system also renders 3D models in real time.

“This means that the planetarium can use its dome to travel anywhere in the universe in a matter of seconds,” said Wolbrecht. “The new system will provide variety to our live programming, but we will have new pre-recorded shows to share too.”

There will be multiple new additions to the planetarium’s season. This year’s new show it titled “Moons: Worlds of Mystery.” The show will premiere in February and is one of seven brand new shows the planetarium will be offering to the public.

The planetarium will also be bringing back their guest lecture series with two new lectures. The first, on November 3, 2017, is entitled “Galileo, Shakespeare, Van Gogh: Creative Reactions to the End of the World.” The second, on March 23, 2018, is entitled “A Quark’s Life.”

This year the planetarium will be holding their Opening Weekend lectures on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 8:00PM and Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 2:00PM and again at 8:00PM. The Opening Weekend is the kick off to their exciting new season and also where the new Sky-Skan Definiti Theater system will be premiered. If you plan to go, the doors do not open until 30 minutes prior to each showing. Seating is first come, first seated.

For more general information about the planetarium, you can peruse their website here. You can also keep up to date with the Ward Beecher Planetarium by following them on Facebook.

YSU CSIS Runs Jackson-Milton Coding Camp

From July 31 to August 4, 2017, the Computer Science and Information Systems Department at YSU conducted a week-long coding camp at Jackson-Milton High School. The camp was created to introduce Jackson-Milton high school and middle school students to various aspects of the computer science field.

With the help of Dr. Bonita Sharif, recent Computer Science and Mathematics graduate Benjamin Clark coordinated several activities that allowed students to experiment with coding and programming. Together, Sharif and Clark created activities that taught the students about computer science topics like binary numbers, error checking, graph coloring, and learning how to give computers commands.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Throughout the entire camp, students could work individually while focusing their efforts toward a similar goal. Almost every student walked into the camp without any knowledge about coding or programming.

To start off the first part of the camp, each student was introduced to the Raspberry Pi. Through this system, they all learned about programming, basic circuitry, and interacting with their prototype circuits using C++. Shortly after learning these skills, they were then able to use the Raspberry Pi to control the motors on their robots. On their last day, they were introduced to a programmed eye tracker system that allowed the students to play a video game with only their tracked eye movements, nothing else.

All equipment provided in the camp came specifically from the NSF outreach funds presented to Dr. Sharif. The NSF grant was awarded to Dr. Sharif in 2016. To read more about the grant click here.

When speaking to each of the students, it was obvious that they truly loved the aspects of the camp. A high school student, Mackenzie Martin (junior), entirely enjoyed her time in the camp.

“I really loved how easily everyone was able to catch me up with missing the first few days of the camp,” said Martin. “They broke everything down really well even though I was behind everyone else.”

Another high school student, Garrik Cataina (freshman), commented that “the entire camp was so well rounded. I enjoyed all of it: the socializing at lunch time, talking with the volunteers, and learning how to code.”

Dr. Sharif also spoke very highly of her experience at Jackson-Milton, saying “we are very thankful to Mr. Vega, Jackson Milton High School’s principal, for the venue to conduct the camp.”

She would also like to give credit to the YSU SERESL volunteers that assisted with the program throughout the week: Alex Bonnette, Alexandra Fountaine, Devin Patrick, Christopher Hardaway, Mark DeGenova, Bob Collins, Natalie Halavick, and Nick Iovino.

“My favorite part about the camp was getting the students to understand what computer science is about,” said Dr. Sharif. “I enjoyed being able to provide them with hands-on experiences where they could troubleshoot and debug issues what popped up.”

This was the first coding camp YSU has done at Jackson-Milton, but they intend to continue doing them annually. For more information about the camp, or future computer-related camps, contact Dr. Sharif at bsharif@ysu.edu.
