What are you doing for eWeek?

Engineers celebrate their profession with eWeek activities, many aimed at exciting youth about what engineering can do for them, and for the world.

Engineers Week, Feb. 16-22, 2014, is a time to celebrate how engineers make a difference in the world, increase public dialogue about the need for engineers, and bring engineering to life for children, educators, and parents, according to organizers, DiscoverE. This year’s theme is “Let’s make a difference.” 

Most in the U.S. have little grasp of the engineering profession, and the collaborative and creative nature that enhances quality of life.

DiscoverE said: “Engineers Week is a time to make a difference by celebrating our accomplishments and sharing our knowledge, experiences, and enthusiasm. It is a time to turn comments like ‘I didn’t know that’ into exclamations of ‘I want to do that!’ It is a time to come together and mobilize our colleagues—engineers, engineering students, technicians, and technologist—to volunteer to make a difference by visiting a classroom, recognizing the work of a colleague, or hosting a public event.”

It’s not too late. Join an eWeek activity in process in your area.

Join the discussion. Atop www.controleng.com are links to Control Engineering’s social media sites. Pick your favorite and share with us how you might be celebrating Discover E’s “Let’s make a difference” E-Week.
