The ASC Office has moved up the hall from Suite 108 to Suite 105 due to a change in building management. We were fortunate to have our first five years at Wright Point Office Park with no rental charges. The management needed our large suite for a new occupant, but they provided a smaller suite with a lease for a very reasonable rental charge. The Society mail boxes are set up as before. For more details, please email to

Recent TechFest Events

TechFest 2020 was held on the weekend of February 15-16, at the main campus of Sinclair Community College. The STEM activities included 72 exhibits and 33 Info-tainment events featuring 11 speakers. The primary exhibit hall was the David Ponitz Center (Building 12). Aircraft simulators, unmanned aerial systems and a wind tunnel were exhibited at the Unmanned Aerial Systems Center in Building 13 with indoor drone flight demos in the Flying Pavilion. Also demonstrated in the Pavilion was a DP&L safety presentation on high and low voltage electricity. Lists of exhibitors, speakers and donors can be found at Outdoor events held near the front entrance to Building 12 included fire safety demonstrations, rocket motor test firings, City of Dayton Firefighting equipment, two Tesla cars and the Dayton Amateur Radio Association communication van. ASC could not organize TechFest if it were not for the number of volunteers and their time as well as the generous financial and in-kind support of many donors. This year 645 volunteers devoted well over 3,000 hours to the running of TechFest. There were 1,231 registered student attendees. With parents, other adults and non-registered students, the total attendance was estimated to be around 2,000.

TechFest 2019 was held on the weekend of February 16-17 on the downtown Dayton campus of Sinclair Community College. There were 1657 registered student attendees. With parents, other adults and non-registered students, the total attendance is estimated to be around 3000. There were 71 exhibitors and 32 Info-Tainment presentations. Total attendance was lower this year due to the number of competing events in the greater Dayton area and the discontinuance of sending student flyers to area schools, because numerous school districts no longer will distribute flyers. Electronic media and emails were used to promote TechFest. Dayton public television station, Think TV (channels 16 & 14), was the media sponsor for TechFest 2019.

TechFest 2018 was held on the weekend of February 17-18 at Sinclair Community College. There were 2285 registered student attendees. With parents, other adults and non-registered students, the total attendance is estimated to be around 4000. The success of TechFest is owed to the 74 exhibitors and their handson exhibits. There were 10 exhibitors new to TechFest this year, including a team from the Office of Communications & External Relations, NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland and the University of Finley.

The Affiliate Societies Council (ASC) and its TechFest Team received the 2010 Wilson Charbonneaux Award from the Engineers Club of Dayton for their efforts to make science and technology understandable to the general public.
