Engineering Week is February 18th through the 24th!

If any of our IEEE members get an opportunity to visit a Central Florida K-12 classroom sometime during Engineering Week to talk about what they do within their career field or to bring in some fun, hands-on, engineering related activity into the classroom that helps to motivate students to think about pursuing a career related to engineering and technology, the IEEE Orlando Section would love to hear about it!

So much so that if our IEEE members send in a photo of themselves volunteering within the K-12 classroom during Engineering Week, we will post their photo on our IEEE Orlando Section web page and mail them a FREE IEEE T-shirt to wear the next time that they volunteer within the community

Thanks in advance for helping to motivate young minds to become enthusiastic about the exciting engineering and technology related career opportunities that await them! Make sure to send in your T-shirt size and preferred home mailing address along with your Engineering Week volunteer photo to
