Discover Engineering Family Day at DC
Volunteer and network! Collaboration of SWE and AIChE
Be part of the fun and volunteer for a fun day at the National Building Museum during Engineers Week!!
What is Family Day @ National Building Museum? The annual Washington DC Engineering Family Day is enjoyed by over six thousand visitors to the National Building Museum every February. The festival features dozens of hands-on activities provided by local engineering chapters and national organizations. Every year at the start of Engineer's Week, the impressive main hall of the National Building Museum is taken over by thousands of children of all ages experiencing the excitement of engineering, not to mention slime.
The National Building Museum and the National Engineers Week Foundation invite you to debunk the myths of engineering and discover how professional engineers turn an idea into reality. Celebrate National Engineers Week by participating in this free, hands-on and fun-filled festival!
Discover Engineering Family Day is a FREE, drop-in program. Program and activities are most appropriate for children ages 5 to 13 with adult supervision. Registration is not required.
What do you do as a volunteer? SWE BWS partners with AlChE, to run the slime making stations! It is the most popular event at Family Day every year - everyone loves slime!
Slime Making - Each child gets to see how to make slime and understand chemistry! They each get to pick their own color and this gross stuff is a HUGE hit!!
