The University of Georgia College of Engineering will celebrate National Engineers Week Feb. 22-28 with a series of activities designed to recognize the contributions engineers make to society.
Organized at the national level by DiscoverE, National Engineers Week aims to recognize how engineers make a difference in our world, increase public dialogue about the need for engineers and bring engineering to life for children, educators and parents.
The events at the College of Engineering include tours of labs for UGA students interested in engineering, a panel discussion on the college’s global initiatives and a presentation on study abroad opportunities for engineering students.
The college will also host the annual TEAMs (Tests of Engineering, Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) competition for middle and high school students Feb. 24. During the event at the Tate Student Center’s Grand Hall, students from schools across Georgia will apply math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real-world engineering challenges.
