Sue Smith, Rebecca Hamburgess, Laura Whayne and Victoria Brock, representing the Shaver Engineering Library and the Transportation Library, exhibited at Engineer’s Day on Saturday, February 23rd. One of UK Libraries’ databases, Films On Demand, and other Internet resources were used to show short film clips on unusual Engineering careers relating to birdbots, swarm technology, and bubble engineering.
Engineer’s Day, or E-Day, is an annual event during National Engineers Week. Games, activities, exhibits and information are offered and geared towards elementary, middle and high school students as a way to promote engineering, science and math as a possible career choice. Those with an interest will hopefully choose the University of Kentucky for their academic studies in engineering.
