IEEE Seattle section heard the shocking news of campus shooting at Seattle Pacific University. We extend our sympathy, prayer and support to the entire Seattle pacific Community. Our Condolences and prayers go to Victims, their families and their friends.
Our webmaster of IEEE Seattle Pacific University student branch , Jon Meis tackled the 26-year-old gunman Aaron Ybarra, who was not a student, and hitting him with pepper spray while he was reloading a shotgun. Ybarra had already injured several victims, one of whom died. Jon Meis put the alleged gunman in a chokehold and held him on the ground until police arrived.
We are proud of our heroic member, Jon Meis. All of us, members of IEEE , we pledge to be leaders to bring peace to our community and the world.
Dr. Sheree Wen
Chair, IEEE Seattle section

Here are a few photos from our IEEE branch’s field trip to the Spark Museum last Saturday.  Nine of us drove up to Bellingham for the day and got to see a wide array of electrical devices.  It was great to see many of the first electrical inventions that paved the way for the EE degree that we are working toward today.
The CEO of the museum, John Jenkins, gave us a tour and showed us his private collection of books that he keeps locked away.  They contained some of the first recorded electrical experiments and formulas like Ohm’s Law!I would highly recommend stopping by if you are ever in the area!.
