Annual Engineers Fair

The Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC) Efair Image hosts an Engineering Fair in conjunction with local chapters of engineering societies, colleges, and businesses. The Engineering Fair generally has about 25 display booths, staffed by practicing engineers and technical people representing many types of engineering disciplines. In addition, Efair Imagethe Fair also features a hands-on design competition on site (The Popsicle Stick Bridge Load Competition sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers). More information on the contest can be found at www.seattleasce.org/ymf.

The Fair provides a fun, visible way to see and hear about the various types of engineering disciplines, as well as encourage students to think about engineering as a career. This is an annual event that coincides with National Engineers Week in February.

There is no admission required to enter the Fair, which will occur in the Museum of Flight’s Side Gallery on Saturday Feburary 8th, from 10 AM to 4 PM. However, entry into the museum portion of the Museum of Flight is required.
