Discovery Science Center Celebrates National Engineer’s Week Beginning February 16, 2013

In conjunction with National Engineer’s Week, the Science Center hosts hands-on science activities and programs for the whole family to enjoy.

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Discovery Science Center (DSC), presented by Taco Bell, is proud to bring exciting hands-on exhibits, demonstrations and speaker presentations to celebrate National Engineer’s Week February 16 – 23, 2013.

The week begins on February 16th with interactive demonstrations that will allow guests to put their engineering talents to the test.  Attendees can build their very own block tower and Catenary Arch as they gain practical knowledge of S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and math) principles. Also, the first 500 kids to visit DSC beginning Saturday, February 16th will receive a FREE water rocket building kit!

Engineer’s Week concludes on February 23rd with the thrilling and always entertaining “Egg Drop Competition.” This annual competition has kids and adults of all ages design and build an Egg Transport Vehicle (ETV) – a device that will house and protect an egg from breaking as it falls to the ground from various heights. Guests can compete to win prizes including an Annual Membership to DSC!

“Engineer’s Week is a great opportunity to introduce kids and families to STEM principles and the important role of engineering in our local community,” said Erin Rhodes, Marketing Manager. “By showcasing the ways in which engineering is all around us, we are able to engage and inspire our guests.”
