My apologies to my engineer friends; with yesterday being Presidents’ Day, I missed marking the start to National Engineers Week. Coincidence that they fall in the same week? I think not.

So, if you drove on a road today, thank an engineer. If you rode in a vehicle, thank an engineer? Rode your bike to work or school? Yep, an engineer designed that bike lane, trail or road you rode on. So you walked today? Guess what? There’s an engineer behind the sidewalks and crosswalks you used. Okay, you get the idea. Engineers pretty much have their hands, and mechanical pencils, in everything.

So, here are a couple National Engineers Week events I’d like you to keep in mind:

  • Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day 2013 on Thursday, February 21st
  • Discover Engineering Family Day is February 18

If you have any questions, here’s the website for the National Engineers Week Foundation. Knock yourself out.
