National Engineer’s Week
This week was National Engineer’s Week (Feb. 16 – Feb 20). The purpose of celebrating National Engineers Week is to promote engineering principles and innovative ways to teach math and science to students of all ages. Also, companies host events for employees as well! On Wednesday Boeing held a Bottle Rocket Contest for employees. I didn’t have string at home for my parachute so I used dental floss which held up really well (Minty smell too!!)!! We all had a lot of fun with the construction of the rockets as well as the launching!
