Throughout the Unites States we celebrate Engineers Week every year on the week of George Washington's birthday in honor of the first president's background as an engineer and land surveyor. I’ll bet Washington never imagined getting an EWeek message from the International Space Station (left). In the coming year many events will take place during EWeek, FEBRUARY 17-23, 2019. However, Engineers Week is more than a week-long event; it is a year-round commitment by the engineering community to reach out to students, teachers, parents and counselors and make a difference.
In Chicagoland there are celebrations and awards for engineers who have excelled in their field of engineering and for outstanding engineering projects. There are communications about the great need for engineers, including the difference engineers make in our world. And as you will see in our CALENDAR there are events for students of all ages hosted by engineers, engineering societies and organizations who volunteer their time to bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents.
Our goal is to provide an easy resource available to students, parents, teachers and volunteers in and around Chicago for engineering related STEM programs being offered for local students. We hope to engage our engineer volunteer community to celebrate and encourage students in engineering.
