Pittsburgh has long been at the core of engineering innovation with iconic bridges, environmentally friendly construction, and modern building design. Engineer the Future, held in observance of National Engineers Week, celebrates the science of engineering and the region's achievements and advances in architecture, building, and construction.
This two-day event features presentations, hands-on activities, and science demonstrations that are designed to inspire young people to explore engineering.
