February 17th through 23rd, 2008 is National Engineer's Week!
And, a special note is that February 21st is 'Introduce a Girl to Engineering' day!
Check out these links to find resources and ideas of how you can participate.
Sometimes I worry that Engineering and other technical design fields have an image problem. Students contemplating different careers think of engineering as 'too hard' or 'too nerdy' or as needing too much science or math. Most folks that I talk to in the industry have a parent, grandparent or other close relative in Engineering.
So, yeah, we've obviously got the insight that engineering is cool (very cool), too bad most students don't know that... yet. ;)
