Join the North Carolina American Society of Civil Engineers in Celebrating National Engineers Week February 17th to 23rd, 2013. National Engineers Week, now called E-Week, takes place each year at the time of George Washington's birthday.
E-Week is a program to increase public awareness of engineers' contributions to society by celebrating innovation and technology. E-Week promotes staying in school and specifically promotes science & mathematics through presentations and hands-on demonstrations. E-Week targets middle school students.
The Section Board of Directors have agreed to reimburse each NC branch up to $500 for E-week materials used in classroom outreach. Contact the E-week coordinator from your branch for more information.
ASCE invites you to volunteer to visit a middle school or elementary school in your area. To help in your volunteer efforts, the NC ASCE Section has the information links available to you to help you get geared up for your volunteer efforts. Feel free to contact one of the ASCE Branch coordinators for additional information on volunteering and obtaining E-Week materials.

***Volunteer Opportunities***Many schools have requested ASCE provide engineers to speak to their students!
"Dear Mr. Philbin,Thank you for coming to our class. The domes were fun, but I think cleaning the pennies was best of all. I love my foam dome, I use it all the time. I am so glad that I won the K'nex bridge. You are one of the best teachers in the world. Please come again. Please come again. I made a picture of you. Thank you again.Sincerely, Savannah."
