Engineers Week - Resources for Kids

Ready to celebrate National Engineers Week??


Engineers Week was founded in 1951 by NSPE and is dedicated to ensuring diversity in the future of Engineering. This week is used to increase awareness of the industry and to show that all types are welcome to join the engineering and tech world. Letting your kids learn with STEM activities is a great way to introduce them to these fields. You never know, you could have a little Nikola Tesla on your hands!


Here are some great free resources for your little engineer to explore!
