INCOSE San Diego Chapter hosts Fourth Annual Engineering Night on-board the USS Midway Museum to raise awareness of STEM needs in our local schools.
September 27, 2015 6:00pm to 9:00pm
The San Diego Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the San Diego Section of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) along with the International Test and Evaluation Association (ITEA) and the INCOSE Foundation, are proud to announce we are hosting the fourth annual San Diego Engineering Night on September 27, 2015, at the USS Midway Museum in Downtown San Diego. The San Diego Engineering Geek Night on the USS Midway Museum is a local industry and academic event dedicated to raising Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) awareness and support for local K-12 schools in the San Diego region.
An increasing complexity of today’s systems along with a current and projected long-term shortage of qualified workers inspires INCOSE to encourage future generations to pursue engineering and science careers. These fields include aerospace, defense, telecommunications, energy, water and waste management, transportation, homeland and cyber security, and health care.
INCOSE’s goal is to specifically help science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs that have funding shortfalls in local schools. The programs, better known as STEM, are designed to interest and excite students about careers in technical and scientific fields such as systems engineering.
San Diego Engineering Night begins at 6 p.m. Attendees will enjoy admission to the USS Midway Museum, a guided tour, flight simulator rides, a spaghetti buffet, a student robotics demonstration, networking with engineering colleagues and a fantastic flight deck view of San Diego Harbor. Ticket prices for this event are $30 for adults, $20 for those 6-17 years of age, and children 5 years of age and under free. In addition, a family package is available for $100 which includes admission for 2 adults and up to 4 people between 17 and 6 years of age. Tickets can be purchased online at http://sdincose.org/4th-midway-event and sponsorships are still available.
