Next week, 2013 Feb 17–23, is National Engineers’ Week.  (My apologies to the organizers, but I refuse to spell it without an apostrophe as they do.)

Thursday (2013 Feb 21) is Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day.

I’m not aware of anything that the Jack Baskin School of Engineering at UCSC is doing, but I’m just a faculty member, and we’re always the last to be told anything (and then generally in the form of “the deadline is tomorrow, drop everything and do it now!”). National Engineers’ Week seems to be organized mainly by international tech companies (heavy on the energy and transportation industries), and they’ve apparently not done much for involving universities in the program.

I don’t have anything planned for National Engineers’ Week myself, because I only found out about it a few minutes ago.

To be fair, I heard of it two years ago also and had similar grumbles about the lack of visibility.
