Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to quality of life, Engineers Week promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technological literacy, and motivates youth to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. The celebration will last for three days on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and local school groups are invited to attend, visit the student design challenge tent, and meet with engineers, scientists, and business leaders who are working to develop innovations designed to advance economic growth while reducing environmental impact.
