#BigBeacon Twitter chat – Feb 24 – Engineers Changing the World

For many, the ultimate goal is to use their skillsets or degree to help others or change the world. Many students feel that this doesn’t need to wait, that they can use what they know now to help their communities, and they have many creative and innovative ways to do this.

Join us Wednesday, February 24 at 8pm ET using the hashtag #BigBeacon to hear from students from the eNABLE Chapter at Bucknell University.

Questions that will be asked during the Twitter chat:

  • What drives them to dedicate some of their free time towards service?
  • What methods are they using?
  • How does their education come into play?
  • How do they perceive impacting their communities and the world in the future?

Big Beacon invites students to join in our Twitter chats focused student-centered issues! We want to engage students in our conversations to transform engineering education. We want to bring student voices to a platform that listens to students’ ideas and experiences and cherishes them. Big Beacon values student voices as professional voices and are as valued as those of teachers, professors, and administrators.
