This year's celebration of Engineers Day, or E-Day, will be held at the University of Kentucky College of Engineering from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, February 22. The event, located in the engineering complex on campus, will celebrate everything engineers and computer scientists do to make the 21st-century what it is today. The event is free and open to the public.
E-Day brings together students, families and anyone interested in the field of engineering to learn more about what it's like to be an engineer or a UK engineering student or researcher. Approximately 150 demonstrations, exhibits and contests presented by UK students and departments, government organizations and industry will be featured.
E-day is a "come and go" type event. A few contests such as the egg drop will have a start time, so it is advised that the public arrive at the event near 9 a.m. to be able to participate in such judged events. Attendees will also be able to explore computer labs to see students' and researchers' work.
Engineers Day will also be celebrated from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Central Time Saturday, February 22, at the Paducah Campus of the UK College of Engineering.
