A new LDRD (Laboratory Directed Research and Development) session has been added the EAC engineering retreat on Monday, Feb. 17. The LDRD program is a great resource for all science and technology staff at the laboratory with the FY21 call coming out in late spring. This session will provide a presentation on the program followed by Q&A. All are welcome to attend.

For 2020 Engineers’ retreat, the EAC is sponsoring a week-long series of events to highlight Fermilab’s own engineering community. Register NOW for onsite tours, 3Dprinting demonstrations, and Professional Inreach (PI) workshops. Registration will be first-come, first-serve. We will try to accommodate those on any wait list, but there are no guarantees due to limited room availability and/or capacity. https://indico.fnal.gov/event/22843/

For the 2020 Engineers’ Retreat, several PI (Professional In-reach) Workshops, 3D Printing Demo Sessions, and tours of Fermilab sites have been planned during National Engineers Week (Feb. 17-21).  Remember to stay up-to-date with registration and updates by subscribing to the engineers_all email list.

The celebration of National Engineers Week was started in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers in conjunction with President George Washington’s birthday. President Washington is considered as the nation’s first engineer, notably for his survey work. It is observed by more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. The purpose of National Engineers Week is to call attention to the contributions made by engineers. This year, National Engineers Week is…
