Wednesday, Feb. 22 – Fiction Predictions
What did people 100 years ago imagine for the future? What do we dream of for the world in the next 100 years? Engineers play a vital role in innovating solutions to global challenges that impact future generations. What challenges of today can we solve for tomorrow?

 

Thursday, Feb. 23 – National Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
Introduce a Girl to Engineering, or Girl Day, is a time when volunteers, educators, and others act as role models, facilitate engineering activities, and show girls how engineers change our world. DiscoverE’s Despite the Odds research found that this simple formula helps girls develop an interest in engineering, builds their confidence in their problem-solving skills, and creates a STEM identity.

Presenters:

  • Reinstein Woods
  • LaBella Associates
  • Niagara Aerospace Museum
  • Stained Glass Association of America
  • Linde
  • TechBuffalo

 

Friday, Feb. 24 – Engineering for Everyone

You Create the Future!  Everyone can play a vital role in innovating solutions to global challenges that impact future generations. Let’s work together to develop ideas for new technologies from recycled and reusable resources readily available today.

 

Saturday, Feb. 25 – Youth in Engineering led by the BMS Teen STEM Initiative

All week we’ve been inspired by adults who have been leading the charge of engineering. Now we’re shining a spotlight on the brilliance of our own youth leaders in the Teen STEM Initiative at the Buffalo Museum of Science. The teens have planned and developed all the ideas you’ll see when you visit on Saturday.

Special Presenter: Teen STEM Initiative
