ASET Technology Alberta Winter 2019 - 40

ASET News
Recent swell in media attention prompts
launch of ASET in the News
Have you noticed ASET members mentioned on TV, radio or
in your local paper over the last few months and wondered
how you could view, hear or read that story in full? Look no
farther than ASET in the News.
ASET in the News was launched this summer as a subfolder
under the news & events section on the ASET website. A
news releases section has also been introduced so that you
can view the latest ASET stories distributed to the media.
ASET has recently been ramping up proactive media relations activities with the objectives of enhancing public and
media awareness of ASET's role as Alberta's regulator of
engineering technology professionals, and spotlighting the
remarkable work of ASET members, including how they
contribute to the public good.
Since July, ASET has promoted the 2019 Capstone Project
of the Year Award winners and finalists to media in Edmonton, Calgary, and smaller communities. All finalists were invited to participate in individual media campaigns.
To date, four Capstone teams have been in the news with the
first campaign focused on the winning team from Lethbridge
College. Tyson Baldrey, Randy Holmberg, and Allan Johnston
were recognized for their project that sought to use bamboo
in place of rebar in concrete construction projects. Their story
was featured on Global Lethbridge, CHQR The Morning News,
Lethbridge Herald and Lethbridge News Now.
The Guardian Angel Car Seat System, a Capstone finalist
project by an all-women team from NAIT, proved to be a hot
topic, landing coverage on Global Edmonton, CBC Radio
Edmonton Radioactive, 630 CHED, Medicine Hat News, and
CTV News Calgary. The team consisted of Jennifer Pettem,
Emer Burke, and Rachel Beaudette. A common question
they fielded from journalists, reflecting the concerns of anxious parents, was: when will this product be on the market?

A Capstone finalist project called Skywalker - a concept for
an aerial emergency rescue operation vehicle (AERO-V) that
can rapidly extract multiple people from high-rises and skyscrapers in emergency situations - took off in the media,
picking up coverage on CHQR Calgary Today, Global Calgary, CBC Radio Calgary The Eyeopener, CTV News Calgary
CTV Morning Live, CHQR Afternoon News, Edson Leader,
and Hinton Parklander. SAIT team member Nghia Vu served
as spokesperson on behalf of teammates Jingyan (Jessica)
Su, Thien Nguyen, and Sikwon Yang.
A finalist project from Red Deer College experienced similar
lift: the flying Wi-Fi hotspot. Team member Jonathan Wong
piloted the media effort, which resulted in coverage on CTV
News Edmonton, and in the Calgary Sun, Calgary Herald, Regina Leader-Post, and Wi-Fi Now. The team included Wong's
brother Austin, as well as Austin Smith, Denon Magnes, Kyler Sereda, and Garrett Stewart.
ASET in the News also presents coverage from last year's
women in technology media campaign, which featured
ASET council member Tara Chahl, C.E.T., PMP. The story
appeared on Global Calgary, Global Edmonton, CKNW Simi
Sara Show (Vancouver) and in the Edmonton Journal, Calgary Herald, Edmonton Sun, Calgary Sun, Sherwood Park
News, and Edmonton Examiner.
