Engineers: Inspiring Wonder - February 18-24, 2018
ASCE partners with
(formerly the National Engineers Week Foundation) to shine a spotlight on engineering. Engineers Week is a time to:
- Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
- Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
- Bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents
Plan To Get Messy
What would Engineers Week be without rolling up your sleeves and doing hands-on activities with kids?
Engineer's Week All Year Long
Who said visits to schools, libraries and after-school programs are limited to February? These groups love visitors year-round.
Engineers Week is the perfect time to celebrate the work volunteers do throughout the year to promote civil engineering in their communities. Every year ASCE invites each Section and Branch to recognize outstanding volunteers. These volunteers may have been involved in local community service, Engineers Without Borders, K-12 outreach, or other acts of service.
