Engineers Day at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

February 17, 2018

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis hosts this event to increase public awareness about Engineering and to help young students consider Engineering as a career option.

The event will be held at The Children’s Museum on Saturday, February 17th, 2018, from 10:00 – 3:00.

The program consists of engineers being stationed near several exhibits throughout the museum. Each station will have a hands-on activity that ties in with an engineering discipline. Volunteers will be there to talk with visitors, answer any questions about engineering, and hand out materials.

Local engineers will lead activities and demonstrate how engineering has contributed to our health and safety.
