National Engineers Week - 2018 Activities
2018 Theme: Engineers: Inspiring Wonder
Engineers Week is YOUR time.
It’s a call to recognize the people who create today’s awe-inspiring wonders like cloud-busting skyscrapers and human travel to Mars. Our lives would be very different without daily marvels like clean drinking water, computers, and cars.
Engineers Week is a time for everyone to celebrate and wonder what the next big innovation will be. It’s also a great opportunity for DiscoverE volunteers and educators to inspire students by engaging them in hands-on engineering outreach. Show them that their school subjects can help solve real problems. And, of course, encourage them to wonder ‘Is engineering my future?’
It all adds up to this year’s theme: ‘Engineers: Inspiring Wonder.’
The 2018 DiscoverE Co-Chairs leading the National Engineers Week 2018 include the DiscoverE Leadership Council* and the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying® (NCEES). To learn more more about other national DiscoverE programs click here.
