Engineering Career Expo for High School Students

We are excited to be volunteering on the committee that is organizing the 8th Annual Lower Hudson Valley Engineering Expo.  This expo is designed to show high school students what a career in engineering can be.

To that end, we are reaching out to corporations, engineering firms, government organizations, engineering societies as well as college and universities so students can find out:

1- What is an engineer?
2- What do engineers do?
3- What kind of job opportunities are available to engineers?
4- How can these kids "get there"?

Last year this event hosted 1,500 students and 35 colleges/universities.

Our special guest speaker is Marshall Brain - Founder of "How Things Work" a program on Discovery Networks.

8th Annual Engineering Expo Details:
Date: Sunday, April 3, 2011
Where: White Plains High School, White Plains, NY
Time: 11AM - 4PM

If you can help support us by sponsoring a booth, please let us know.
If you know a student that would benefit by attending, please let them know.
Attendance is FREE.  

Registration opportunities and full details are on our website: www.BeAnEngineer.Org

It is going to be a GREAT day for the kids!!!
Hope to see you there.
