Started 67 years ago by the National Society of Professional Engineers, Engineering Week is a national effort to raise awareness about the importance of STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – education by celebrating the work of engineers across the nation. The goal of Engineering Week 2019 is to celebrate how engineers make a difference, increase public dialogue about the importance and need for engineers, and illustrate engineering in a way that speaks to kids, educators, and parents.
This year’s theme “Invent Amazing” encapsulates everything we do as engineers. We find creative ways to apply the principles of math and science to solve problems people encounter every day, inventing amazing things around the world. Engineers have connected nations and states with bridges, found cures for diseases, and built computers.
Engineering Week is more than just a digital movement. Throughout the week, there are great events, including
Each of these events was created to focus on promoting STEM education, addressing the gender gap in engineering, and spreading awareness about the important role engineers play in everyday life.
This year is going to be the biggest and best Eweek yet. We hope you will join us from February 17 to 23 as we celebrate Engineering Week 2019 along with thousands of engineers across the nation!
