Krug Lecture Alpha Chi Sigma April 24th, 2010
History Louis G. Krug initiated with the Zeta Chapter on January 16, 1915. Brother Krug left a substantial bequest to the Zeta Chapter. We have used his bequest to establish an annual lecture series. The Krug Lectures bring faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates together to share in the riches of Chemistry.
Krug Lecture 2010 The lecture took place in the Technology room of the iHotel The lecture was followed by a 5 course dinner next door The entire chapter, new pledge class, and professors in the chemistry department attended
Krug Lecture 2010 Brother Cary Supalo, a blind chemist was our guest speaker Cary’s Ph.D. thesis project is a National Science Foundation funded project from the Research in Disabilities Education (RDE) where he is developing accessible tools and techniques to assist blind students in performing high school level chemistry laboratory experiments.

New Society Instatement
U.S. Women in Nuclear UIUC Chapter
Mission (as stated in our charter) support an environment in nuclear energy and nuclear technologies in which women are able to succeed provide a supportive network through which the women in these fields can further their professional development provide a means by which collegiate women interested in these fields can socialize provide an organization through which the public is informed about nuclear energy and nuclear technologies
Plan to Fulfill Mission Provide professional development opportunities for members Provide social and networking events for members Outreach to local community
Why we want to join Engineering Council Access to Resources: funding, webspace, leadership events, publicity More importantly: we want to expand our network beyond just the Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering Department—we want our membership to extend to all women who are interested in the nuclear-related fields, as well as everyone who supports them, not just those who are in NPRE
Fighting Illini Battlebots Team
What is BattleBots? Who are we? 1 national competition each year 120 pound robots fight in an arena for 3 minutes Whoever lands the most hits or disables the other robot wins! Weapons can include spinning drums, saws, high-torque motors, or even an entire spinning robot Our team members have competed together for 8 years in robotics competitions In the 4 years they competed in BattleBots at the high school level, they placed a robot in the top 5 nationally each year
Our Plan to Succeed We plan to continue building on our success from past years by using innovative design techniques to gain the University of Illinois an even greater reputation in the competitive robotics field. We will actively search for sponsors to ensure that the Fighting Illini Robotics Team will have the resources it needs to succeed on a national level. We will push the envelope with creative and effective new designs combined with building strategies honed by years of experience.
We will engage new members to broaden our knowledge and compete at a higher level than ever before.
BattleBots is an established and world-renowned program that has provided safe, enriching competition for over 10 years.
Why we want to join Engineering Council EC provides a structured leadership framework for clubs We feel we can contribute to the outstanding record of competitive success held by Engineering Council We have already represented the EFC at the Jerry Sanders Competition, and in fact won the Demolition Round of that event. We would like to find new ways to use our skills to the advantage of the EC
