Engineers Week 2015

Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, Engineers Week (EWeek) is dedicated to “ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.”  It’s a time to encourage dialogue between professional engineers and young adults to bring awareness to the need for engineers, and celebrate just how much engineers make a difference in the world.

The success of programs like EWeek depend on a full community involvement. If you work as an engineer (or in any STEM field for that matter) we encourage you to consider:

Presenting at a classroom or after-school group. If you need ideas on how to spark effective dialogue, check out Changing the Conversation, a movement to inspire real change in the field of engineering.

Bringing students to your workplace or campus. The best way to teach is with hands on experience.

Hosting a public event. Set up hands-on activity stations in museums, malls, universities, parks, or libraries. If a public event seems too daunting, consider volunteering with local clubs, organizations, and school programs.

•Getting the word out through social media at www.facebook.com/DiscoverE.org and Twitter@DiscoverEorg using the hashtags #eweek2015 and #inspired2engineer
