engineering and technology week



Experience it in VR

Join us for a virtual reality learning experience designed for High School, Middle School, Junior High, and Elementary school students. Students will learn about the fast-growing world of  engineering and technology, explore potential career opportunities, and experience the ways in which these industries are changing the world around them. This event is part of the global  Engineers Week created by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). The purpose of the event is to encourage the next generation of engineers by providing opportunities for them to learn more and find their interest in engineering and technology. This event harnesses virtual reality technology and is compatible with Oculus VR Headsets. For those without headsets, the event is also accessible using an internet browser. Eligible schools will receive a VR headset to participate in this event.
