Happy Engineers Week!

Happy Engineers Week!! Our section celebrated by hosting two outreach events today. This morning some of our members attended a networking breakfast at the Governors Academy for Engineering Studies at LC Bird HS. Our members had a chance to speak to high school girls about their experience and share advice with them as they plan for college and their careers.

Our second event was "Let's Do Some Engineering!" at the Manchester YMCA. We did a Pollution Patrol activity which focused on environmental engineering and a Ship the Chip activity which focused on design and packaging engineering. We worked with middle school students. It was a lot of fun!

Engineers Week--the only event of its kind--is a time to:

  • Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
  • Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
  • Bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents
