The Virgin Islands Children's Museum is happy to celebrate Engineers Week 2024, which runs from February 18-24, 2024. This year’s theme “Welcome to the Future” is about celebrating today’s achievements and paving the way for a brighter and more diverse future in engineering.

 

Engineering is at the forefront of innovation and is instrumental in designing and creating the solutions that are shaping the world of tomorrow. From the development of the internet and smartphones to space exploration and renewable energy solutions, engineers have been at the forefront of progress, making our lives more efficient, comfortable, and connected. Through their creativity, expertise, and dedication, engineering teams are addressing global challenges, driving technological advancements, and making a positive impact on society’s future.

 

This Engineers Week we hope that you’ll take a moment to recognize and celebrate the work of engineers and engage students in engineering. DiscoverE, the organization behind Engineers Week, has free resources you can use to inspire future innovators, such as hands-on engineering activities and lesson plans, information about engineering education, and pathways to a technical careers. Visit https://DiscoverE.org/EngineersWeek and get the help you need to focus on the “E” in STEM.

 

Celebrate Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day on February 22, 2024! DiscoverE’s Girl Day is a time when volunteers, educators, and others act as role models, facilitate engineering activities, and show girls how engineers change our world. DiscoverE’s Despite the Odds research found that this simple formula helps girls develop an interest in engineering, build their confidence in their problem-solving skills, and creates a STEM identity. Join us and be a role model! Learn more at DiscoverE.org/GirlDay.

A special thanks to Lena Williams of Engineers of Tomorrow Outreach.
