E-Day Live! Engineering and Fun for All Ages
February 01, 2022
From building bridges to discovering medication to writing software — Engineers Day, or E-Day, is the UK College of Engineering's celebration of everything that engineering and computer science have to offer.
For a second year E-Day Live!, which is sponsored by Lexmark, will be live-streamed online on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
"E-Day Live! will be full of engineering activities and presentations," Eric Sanders, the creative director of E-Day Live!, said. "Participants can tune in, participate and ask engineers questions in real-time."
The program will be hosted by current engineering students who share an infectious enthusiasm for the profession and the college.
"This event is a blast for students to watch and engage with," Derrick Meads, chair of E-Day Live!, said. "Since we are live-streaming this event, students will have the opportunity to ask engineers questions and have them answered in real-time. The more students are engaged with the ideas of engineering, the more they'll begin to see themselves as future engineers."
Prior to the event, the E-Day Live! website will have a schedule of events and a list of household items participants will need for interactive exhibits.
Engineers Day comes at the end of Engineers Week, an annual event sponsored by a coalition of more than 100 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies dedicated to promoting math and science literacy and ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce.
