I would like to personally invite you and your students to join us this February for a Virtual Engineers Week Event.
Each year during National Engineers Week, we host high school students interested in exploring the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math to demonstrate why these subjects are relevant by highlighting real-world examples of engineering all around us.
Our organization is driven by civilian employees but led by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers military officers. We are the nation's premier public engineering firm and provide a full spectrum of engineering services, including infrastructure construction such as canals, levees and dams, which provide flood protection, inland commercial navigation, hydropower production and recreation opportunities. We even assist the nation in emergency response.
Our goal is to inspire the next generation of local students to turn their STEM interests into rewarding careers.
I invite you to learn more about our Engineering Week by watching a short video, which you can find at the following link: https://youtu.be/1Z1YYUhSDDs.
Lastly, I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude for all you’ve done to provide quality education to our youth and stay connected with our communities despite the significant hurdles thrown your way during the pandemic. You’ve exemplified perseverance.
Steven R. Miles, Director, Hydroelectric Design Center
