Engineers Week–the only event of its kind–is a time to:
- Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
- Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
- Bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents
More than a week-long event, Engineers Week is a year-round commitment to making a difference. This year’s theme is Engineers Week: Inspiring Wonder. Celebrate. Volunteer. Connect.
The Greater Austin STEM Ecosystem is collaborating with organizations to amplify community events throughout the week of February 17-23, 2019, and engineering education efforts across the community. Nationally, efforts are amplified by DiscoverE (formerly the National Engineers Week Foundation). Use #AustinSTEM #EWeek2019 in all your social media posts and let’s showcase the great things going on across Central Texas!
