Engineer's Week

This week and next Case is celebrating Engineer’s Week. For 65 years this national event has raised awareness of the important role played by engineers in society. And engineers know how to have fun, even in the midst of a serious endeavor. Engineer’s Week events have included dropping eggs from the tops of buildings, creating robots out of Legos, building miniature vehicles powered by mouse traps, lobbing water ballons with slingshots, scavenger hunts, powering hot air balloons with birthday candles, building model homes entirely of polymers, not to mention the luncheons and banquets. Information about the 2016 celebration is available here.

Below are a few pictures from the Archives of past Engineer’s Week events.
