The event coincides with the annual celebration of the National Engineers Week and serves to highlight the proud accomplishments of engineers in almost everything we see around us and showcases the many important achievements engineers have made in our daily lives. This event is the only one of its kind in the United States. As usual, thousands are expected to flock to the event.
The fair is being organized by the Puget Sound Engineering Council, a nonprofit organization which consists of over 20 local chapters of engineering societies.
Some Puget Sound area companies will be at the fair to showcase their corporate programs, and other public relation and community activities. These companies will be joined by local chapters of engineering societies, also proudly promoting their respective organization's objectives, technical projects, and the general roles they play in our society.
The event is open to the general public. Engineers, K-12 grade school and college students, teachers and parents are invited to attend. There will be competitions called MathCounts and the Popcicle Bridge Building Contest, sponsored by the Washington Society of Professional Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers, respectively.
