| Teachers Celebrate!|
February 19-25, 2006, will mark the 55th annual celebration of National Engineers Week. We are offering three new hands-on activities for your classroom, new bookmarks, and much more.
The big news is that now there is a new site designed just for you and your students, especially if theyre in grades 6-9. After you check out the information below, visit the new site at www.discoverengineering.org.
National Engineers Week offers a Teacher In-Service Program featuring engineers developing and presenting technologically-oriented subject matter to precollege educators in a professional development or in-service setting. Lesson plans are available online for use by engineers and educators.
During National Engineers Week, we hope that you will take the opportunity to open your classroom to an engineer from your community. If an engineer hasn't already contacted you, look in your phonebook for local engineering societies, businesses and colleges or check our State Contacts section to see if an engineer has already volunteered to help in your area. Your students will not only learn something new, but will have fun discovering how engineers turn ideas into reality.
