Shane Kimbrough, International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 50 commander and flight engineer Peggy Annette Whitson say happy Engineers Week from space. #Eweek2017 is February 19-25.

  1. Get Inspired during #Eweek2017
  • Go see the Dream Big film and take a friend. SWE’s All Together blog is going this afternoon to a showing at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The 42-minute IMAX film from the American Society of Civil Engineers is getting great reviews. Find a theater near you.
  • Here’s how the film is described: “All around the world, engineers are pushing the limits of ingenuity and innovation in unexpected, imaginative, and amazing ways. Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a giant-screen film about engineering, will take viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds. Along the way, the audience will witness how today’s engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.”
  • Dream Big will:
    • Inform the public about the important work engineers do, helping to heighten interest and change perceptions about the profession
    • Inspire young people to consider careers in engineering
    • Answer the demand for K-12 engineering education resources, in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards

  1. Inspire Others
  • Do a hands-on engineering activity with students.
  • Share your activities on social media.#Eweek2017
  • Congratulate a colleague on making a difference.
  1. Keep It Going

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.

Here’s to a great Engineers Week!
