A Celebration of Engineers Week 2016 – Twitter Style!

A Celebration of Engineers Week 2016 – Twitter Style!

Engineers Week was founded 65 years ago by the NSPE, and according to their website:

“EWeek is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.  Today, EWeek is a formal coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions to quality of life, EWeek promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy, and motivates youth, to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Each year, EWeek reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the U.S.”

To get a sense of all that was accomplished during Eweek, I took to Twitter and searched using #engineersweek and #eweek2016, and a couple other hashtags of the like. There were so many great activities going on, not only as they relate to civil engineering, but to all engineering professions. Below you will find a sampling of all things engineering week including messages from different engineering associations and engineering companies, to a video message from an astronaut in space, to some engineering activities involving elementary aged students…enjoy!
