Join us for Technology and Engineering Day on Saturday, March 4 as we celebrate National Engineers Week and World Engineering Day. Learn about the future of technology and engineering directly from local scientists and engineers right here at Frost Science. You’ll even be able to test out some cutting-edge gadgets! Don’t miss your chance to be on the cutting edge of innovation.

While you wait for the big day, check out our Power of Science exhibition highlighting how engineers and scientists are working together in groundbreaking scientific innovations.

This year’s Technology and Engineering Day is generously supported by the Glenn W. Bailey Foundation. Programming is free with paid museum admission.
