We will try to invite one of our possible guest speakers: Peter (manager of the demolition crew and civil engineer) or Tim (materials engineer).

If the guest speaker cannot make it to our meeting, we will be in the computer lab upstairs (room 19-124) learning how to use SolidWorks.  Please come to the engineering study room first (room 19-042), then we will go to the lab as a group.
