National Engineers Week is March 2 – 8, 2019.
The purpose of the event is to demonstrate to elementary and middle school-age children the many ways engineering impacts our lives… the products engineers create, the range of jobs relating to engineering, the many local companies that employ engineers, and simply to meet engineers and ask questions.
Discovery Center wants to increase the public dialogue about the need for engineers…especially right here in the Rockford Region! Bring engineering to life for children, educators, and parents. The Discovery Center also combines the event with engineering badge workshops for scouts and showcase local student robotics groups ranging from elementary Lego Leagues to competitive high school robotics teams.
