The New Faces of Engineering recognition program highlights the exciting and often unique work of young engineers and the resulting impact on society. Today's engineers are working to solve issues on a global scale, and these engineers, age 30 years or younger, have shown outstanding abilities in projects that significantly impact public welfare or further professional development and growth.
The Global Marathon provides global and regional opportunities for women and provides a place to put forward ideas, solve common problems and come together. Designed to be an interactive event, the Global Marathon encourages women to engage and ask questions through live internet chat, webcasts and phone calls.
Discover "E" engineers share a common desire: to help grade school and high school students discover the exciting worlds of engineering and technology. Their goal is to relate practical applications of math, science, and engineering to the world around them. The information in this Discover "E" section will help you plan activities for National Engineers Week or anytime you work with students. The National Engineers Week Committee encourages you to continue your partnership with local schools throughout the year.
The annual Discover Engineering Family Day is enjoyed by over six thousand visitors to the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. every February. The festival features dozens of hands-on activities provided by local engineering chapters and national organizations. Every year at the start of Engineers Week, the impressive main hall of the National Building Museum is taken over by thousands of children of all ages experiencing the excitement of engineering.
