Engineer’s Week 2012
Beth Lavoie – President
SWE-NESS is also working with both the Providence Children’s Museum and the Niantic Children’s Museum in running Be an Engineer workshops. NESS members and friends are encouraged to volunteer at these workshops. The workshops provide instant gratification to volunteers when they see a child’s eyes light up with understanding, or those goofy grins of pure enjoyment. It’s not too late to sign up! Check out the On the Calendar article for contact information to volunteer.
Finally, I would like to share my favorite E-Week initiative – Introduce A Girl To Engineering Day . This year Introduce A Girl To Engineering Day lands on Thursday, February 23rd. If you can’t volunteer with one of NESS’s E-Week events, perhaps you can make your own E-Week celebration by reaching out to a girl near you and letting her know that engineering is pretty groovy!
