Engineers Week is February 22-28, 2015. As an engineer and science/engineering educator, this is a fun time for me. This is also a great time to expose students to engineering as a career and to incorporate engineering ideas and projects into your classes.

The National Engineers Week web site has tons of resources including lesson plans, career info and information about the different types of engineering.

Engineers Week—the only event of its kind—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


More than a week-long event, Engineers Week is a year-round commitment to making a difference
