20th Anniversary “Discover Engineering Family Day” Opens National Engineers Week

February 16, 2013; ten thousand people will converge at the National Building Museum to welcome Engineers Week, the annual week-long celebration of engineering in the United States. Nearly thirty exhibitors will present hands-on science and engineering exhibits and demonstrations aimed at families, children, youth groups, and others interested in engineering.

For the second year in a row, former astronaut Dr. Roger Crouch, a payload specialist on two 1997 Space Shuttle Columbia missions, will sign autographs all day.

The first Family Engineering Day was held in 1993 as an Engineers Week Gala at Intelsat in Washington, DC. The National Building Museum is located at 401 F. Street, N.W., Washington, DC (between 4th and 5th Streets). Since metered street parking is very limited, it is highly recommended that visitors take the Metro. The National Building Museum is directly across the street from the Judiciary Square Metro Station on the Red Line.
