The purpose of this project was to improve SAE Club membership growth and development by creating and hosting seminars to educate new members about the basics of cars, engineering, and Formula SAE` We aimed to have ample time to introduce a multitude of topics and allow members to gain information from lectures as well as hands-on activities. Each seminar took place for three hours on a Saturday. To gain an understanding how our project was impacting member involvement, we surveyed attendees afterwards with a standardized survey each week. Based upon the survey responses, it was clear that members learned new material and were enthusiastic for the following week’s seminars. It was also evident that the seminars had a positive contribution towards helping people get involved with the club.
