National Engineers Week provides an opportunity to focus attention on the significant contributions engineers make to our modern society. This annual event, which will be held February 20-26 in 2011, also provides an opportunity to help students understand the kind of work that engineers do. Your participation can interest a young person in pursuing an engineering career!
The American Nuclear Society has available suggestions for activities to use during classroom visits. ANS also offers brochures and other materials to leave with students and teachers during classroom visits. Online resources are also available on the ANS Public Information website.
Local Sections, Student Sections, and individual members can all help students and the general public develop a better understanding of the important role of engineers. For a list of 50 ideas about how you can participate in National Engineers Week, visit Get Involved.
