Discover Engineering Family Day Celebrates 25 Years of Illuminating Engineering
Discover Engineering Family Day attendees have met an astronaut. They’ve seen one of NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon’s racecars. They even saw an engineer ascend to the top of the National Building Museum.
On Saturday, 17 February, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Family Day will be held for the 26th time. It will kick off Engineers Week activities in the National Capital region. Through the years, it has illuminated engineering to thousands of parents, teachers and children.
Family Day is designed to introduce children from ages 4 to 12 years old to the wonders of engineering. This year marks the 16th year the event is being staged at the National Building Museum. Engineers of all types will be on hand to share their love of the design-and-build process.
