#KCSTI 2015 Day 9: National Society Black Engineers & FAASTeam

June 25, 2015

Students kicked off Day 9 of KCSTI by working on their trusses.

They then heard a presentation from Scott Laurent, director of the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities at UMKC. He explained some basic information about disabilities. Scott also shared information about supports and accommodations that UMKC and other colleges offer to people. These services include things like assistance from a scribe, one on one conferences with the teacher, and extra time on exams.

Our next presenter for the day was William Leverette, from the National Society Black Engineers (NSBE), who spoke to us about his organization and NSBE Jr. and what opportunities they offer for minorities.

Our last speaker was Marvin Moore, from the Federal Aviation Administration Safety Team (FAASTeam), who presented on the rules and regulations of drone flight and gave a brief demonstration as well.
