In honor of National Engineers Week (Feb. 17–23), the Sixth Class welcomed Academy parent Mr. Kevin Swearingen to their classroom today. An electrical engineer at the Boeing Corporation, Mr. Swearingen spoke about what engineers do and about the different types of engineers. He described some of his projects, including working on an aircraft carrier and solving problems on planes, and spoke about the design process used by engineers. Sixth Class students got to build an airplane of sorts utilizing this same design process. Many thanks to Mr. Swearingen for sharing his time and knowledge with Academy students!

Engineers Week celebrates the positive contributions engineers make to society and is a catalyst for outreach across the country to children and adults alike.
