The 2023 theme for Engineers Week is Creating for the Future. We want to encourage you to get involved with the younger generation to show them how engineers make a difference in our world.
You can start with your own families! Reach out to your children’s school and ask about their programs. Here are some examples of how our own employees got involved: Rafael volunteered for story time, at his child’s school, and read a children’s engineering book. Mike runs FIRST Robotics teams with his children and friends and ran a science day and STEM night at his children’s schools. Keith hosts a yearly bring your child to work day in our office and the children love it!
If you don’t have children and are looking for other opportunities to help, here are some organizations MEA has supported in the past.
