Celebrate Engineers Week – Feb. 16-22, 2020

Be a Pioneer of Progress

From the sidewalks that we walk on to the buildings that we work in, engineering is all around us. From February 16-22, 2020 your library will have a chance to learn about the importance of engineering and bring it to life for kids, educators, and parents in a week-long celebration known as Engineers Week.

During this week, your library will have the opportunity to:

  • Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
  • Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
  • Learn about the engineering design process through fun, hands-on activities
Visit Official Engineers Week Website!

Out-of-this-World Engineering

Space isn’t just for scientists – it’s also for engineers! Join STAR Net as we take a look at some of the newest activities on the STEM Activity Clearinghouse that feature engineering design challenges with a space science theme. As we create rockets and rovers, we’ll be following the engineering design process: think, build, test, and do it again. Come and learn how you can make your 2018 and 2019 STEM programs blast off!
