Engineering Legends as Role Models

Celebrate Engineers Week in a meaningful way by adding a few Engineering Legends to Your Lesson Plans. This first legend will be available during the Feb 25th "Chats With Changemakers". The San Diego Engineers Week Festival will give you an opportunity to meet more legends. And don't forget Engineering Legend Trivia where everyone will have a chance to win prizes:

Looking for a few friends to explore the world of engineering with? Form an engineering club as an after school activity and enter an engineering challenge. Any San Diego student (or San Diego Club) that wins a regional / national / global engineering / technology contest will be recognized during the San Diego Engineers Awards Celebration.
