I almost forgot this is the 60th anniversary of National Engineers week.
“Engineers use their imagination and analytical skills to invent, design, and build things that matter. They are team players with independent minds who turn ideas into reality. By dreaming up creative and practical solutions, engineers are changing the world all the time.
Engineering has been called the “invisible” or “stealth” profession. Everything around us and that we use every day has been engineered in some way yet we may not see the engineers behind the scenes or know much about engineering. Engineering is not part of our grade school education.”
This is the week where the role and capabilities of engineers are celebrated. The activities to support STEM education are recognized and ways for the public (and especially students) to discover engineering identified.
