Celebrate Engineers Week – February 18-24, 2018

Bringing Engineering to Life

From the sidewalks that we walk on to the buildings that we work in, engineering is all around us. From February 18-24, 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

This year, STAR Net will be providing a variety of resources and activities that revolve around one of engineering’s most popular disciplines, Civil Engineering.

Build a Better Program for Engineers Week

Join STAR Net to learn how YOU can bring engineering to your library during this exciting week-long event. We’ll go through several hands-on activities from the STEM Activity Clearinghouse that showcase how much fun it is to think, build, test, and do it again and will also learn why, when it comes it engineering, failure can be a good thing!
