Event tables featuring presentations, demonstrations and activities designed to interest and inspire young people to explore engineering are being planned for February 22 and 23, 2013 as part of Carnegie Science Center's annual celebration of National Engineers Week. Presenting an event table is a fun and effective way for your organization to help us communicate to our youth that math, science and engineering can be enjoyable and challenging.
In February 2012, more than 600 volunteers representing 44 societies, agencies, companies, and universities volunteered their time for National Engineers Week. During that two-day event, nearly 7500 eager young people and curious adults spoke with engineers and enthusiastically participated in a variety of hands-on activities.
We would like to give you the opportunity to participate by presenting an event table and staffing the table with volunteers from your organization. A National Engineers Week event table at Carnegie Science Center will provide you with an ideal forum to promote science and engineering to young people while showcasing your society, agency, company, or university. Through hands-on activities and handouts for the visitors, you can help us explain who engineers are, what engineers do and why engineering is a part of everyday life.
There is no fee to participate in National Engineers Week at Carnegie Science Center; however, sponsor opportunities are available.
Each participating organization will be responsible for planning and organizing their event table activities and for staffing it with volunteers.
Should you wish to be a National Engineers Week Sponsor please complete and submit rsvp by January 2, 2013.
If your organization would like to participate in Engineers Week 2013, you must name a Primary Contact Person through whom we can coordinate your participation.
Please have the Primary Contact Person complete and submit the 2013 Carnegie Science Center National Engineers Week registration form by September 30, 2012.
