Everyone has a friend, roommate, or acquaintance who is an engineer. That friend, roommate, or acquaintance, is probably usually extraordinarily busy building intricate systems, and thus has little free time. You may be frustrated or upset that they don’t have enough free time to spare to hang out or grab a drink.
As an engineering student myself, I know the feeling all too well of not having as much leisure time as I wish I did. (Shoutout to my groupmates working their butts off in the Sackett Building!)
It’s National Engineers Week, and now you can see where all of an engineer’s efforts are going toward. Engineers work to make the world a better, more functional place, and this is the week where all of this is put on display.
To celebrate the wonderful world of engineering, the Engineering Ambassadors are hosting an event called “Explore. Engage. Engineering.” in Alumni Hall of the HUB on today from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. This event is a hands-on opportunity for all students to create items that are often associated with the works of an engineer. These items include video games, roller coasters, skyscrapers, bridges, and even ice cream!
The event is free to the public and gives those interested a chance to get a taste of the engineering community minus the dreadfully hard mathematics that go into all of engineering. This event will showcase how engineering impacts everyday life. Yes, that means your life, too!
