| Engineers: Turning Ideas into Reality |
This section will help you turn a variety of ideas into reality for your business, community or college. If you have a successful program, build on it with ideas here. If you haven't supported Engineers Week before, this will help you start.
Need ideas for new activities? For in-depth examples of successful local programs from last year, including planning tips, budgets, and contact names for more details, see our new Case Studies section. For quick tips, try one of these 50 Ways to celebrate Engineers Week.
For basic organizational tips, see Organizing Your National Engineers Week Program. If you'd like to learn how to take engineering public, particularly at a local shopping mall, see Engineering Goes Public. You'll find ideas for everything from an awards program to getting a government proclamation in Ideas for Your Community. You'll also find out how to participate in the Future City program for junior high school students and any one of three interactive satellite telecasts. Our Media Guide covers everything from producing a newspaper supplement to contacting reporters. Our DiscoverE section is for those of you who plan to work with local elementary, junior and senior high schools.
Tell us about your activities. List your program or chat with others planning Engineers Week events in our Scheduled Events Forum. You can also list yourself as a contact for others in our State Contacts database.
Good luck and visit us again. We update the site throughout the year.
