About the National Engineers Week Foundation
The National Engineers Week Foundation, a formal coalition of more than 75 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies, is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers among young students and by promoting pre-college literacy in math and science. Engineers Week also raises public understanding and appreciation of engineers' contributions to society. Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, it is among the oldest of America's professional outreach efforts. For more information, visit www.eweek.org.
Since its founding in 1992, the National Engineers Week Future City CompetitionTM has
introduced hundreds of thousands of young people to engineering. Often, it is the volunteer engineer mentor that will have the greatest impact in helping make engineering come alive for students. Future City needs engineers from every field to volunteer this fall and winter.
