Founded in 1897, RES is a multi-disciplinary society uniting diverse disciplines to enhance professional development, foster excitement in math and science for the next generation of leaders, and improve communities where members live. The Society supports individual engineers, local affiliates of national engineering societies, schools of engineering, and professional firms. RES provides many opportunities to learn, to build relationships and to contribute to the community.

RES encourages and recognizes innovation, cooperation, professional growth and fellowship, in all levels of development, from student to seasoned engineers, scientists and allied professionals.

RES is recognized as the principal leader committed to increasing the visibility of the greater Rochester area engineering and technical community, serving as a unifying organization for local engineering businesses and associations. 

Our Monthly publication (see current issues below) of the Rochester Engineer disseminates what RES and our affiliates have planned for their members. Please  be sure to check it out and attend a meeting or program for networking!

We are Building our RES Tutoring Team for the 2019-20 School Year… 

Meanwhile, Dr. Walter Cooper Academy is Getting a Make-Over…the Steel Work   is Up for the New Main Entrance

We are beginning to build our Tutoring Team, for the 2019-20 school year… We have been giving “Lunch & Learn” presentations in several Rochester area firms and professional groups, to inform and inspire prospective new tutors. We have “hit the ground, running”, and we need your support...Can we schedule a presentation with your firm, work group, church or family, sometime this Summer, or Fall?

During this past school year, the RES Tutoring Team has given over 300 hours of their time to supporting the process of “learning to read and reading to learn”. We have become an integral part of the learning process at Dr. Walter Cooper Academy, while it eagerly awaits its return to its 19th Ward neighborhood, in the Fall of 2020.

The classroom teachers provide each of our Tutors with a daily plan for each of the students with whom they are working. The process is quite simple; tutors could be supporting teacher-conducted classroom lesson activities, working with small groups of two or three students, or (more likely) working with just one student at a time, on a prescribed learning exercise.

Even just two hours a week of your time can make a big difference in the life of a Dr. Walter Cooper Academy Scholar…

Seeking Volunteer Mentors for “2019 Science Fair”

At Dr. Walter Cooper Academy

The RES has been invited to help establish the first annual, Dr. Walter Cooper Academy Science Fair. The School-Based Planning Team, and the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), including parents, teachers and administrators, has requested the support of the Rochester Engineering Society in developing a Fall 2019 science fair at #10 School. The scope of this request includes…

  • ·          Teachers will introduce the requirements of the science fair to their classes, early this Fall.
  • ·          Students will be invited to volunteer to participate in this assignment, and they will agree to complete the required work.
  • ·          RES Volunteer Mentors will meet with small groups of students, twice a week, at the school, during their daily, 40 minute science instruction block.
  • ·          The RES Volunteer Mentors will help the Students select a “scientific phenomenon” they would like to investigate, guide them in planning their investigation, and help them design their presentation and findings for the Fair. Homework for the Students, in support of this effort, will be a distinct possibility.
  • ·          The Dr. Walter Cooper Academy 2019 Science Fair will be scheduled, at the School, for late Fall 2019.
  • ·          RES Volunteer Mentors will begin helping the Students get prepared for the Fair during the week of October 14th, and then meeting twice each week with their Students, for the next five weeks. This will allow Students and Mentors 10 – 12 days to work on their investigation/presentation.

The RES is seeking Volunteer Mentors to support this Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) activity. Unlike our RES Tutoring Team, this involves only a short-term commitment of approximately five weeks. Volunteer Mentors will be working with Students who have expressed a desire to learn more about science, technology, engineering and math. These Students are motivated!

Do you think you might consider making room in your busy lives to support our “Cooper Scholars” as they develop habits that will help them achieve new levels of learning, focused on a brighter future? Then volunteer to become an RES Volunteer Mentor.

Please contact RES Director, Lee Loomis ( or (585) 738-3079 (mobile & text) for more information, and to volunteer for this important, potentially life-changing opportunity.
