Engineers week (February 22-28 this year) is a time to celebrate the innovative engineers across the country that make our lives better. Engineers week advances the discussion about why engineers are so important and works to get kids more involved in engineering activities, hopefully igniting their interest and excitement about the field.
This year, Science Club for Girls celebrated with rocket science. Meanwhile, Engineering is Elementary has been celebrating by sharing a little about the history of engineering and engineers week, which you can read on their blog.
So how can you celebrate? There are plenty of ways to bring the excitement of engineering to the young people and children in your life. DiscoverE, the organization behind Engineers week, offers a large library of fun activities and videos to get you in the engineering mood. Engineering is Elementary does too! Engineering is Elementary, alongside the Boston Museum of Science, is known for bringing engineering to life in fun and exciting ways for little to no cost. You can find these activities on the DiscoverE website, as well as at Engineering is Elementary for kids of all age ranges, and at Engineering Adventures for children in grades 3-5.
SheGives connects committed, inquisitive, engaged donors with a slate of diligenced nonprofits in the Greater Boston area. We provide members with relevant data about the nonprofits in our portfolio and an opportunity to meet directly with our nonprofits’ Executive Directors and senior staff in small settings that promote in-depth q&a’s and, ultimately, informed giving. Giving is personally driven, but because we give side-by-side our collective impact is greater. See a list of the vetted nonprofits selected for our slate here.
