Let’s point out (again) that rocket science and aerospace has a lot more than engineering and engineers. We need more than engineers and engineering to make it successful! But Engineers Week is a fantastic way to give people an introduction or experience with some exciting aspects of aerospace and aviation. Find something in your neighborhood and get involved!
