Whiting School hosts National Engineers Week activities

Johns Hopkins University's celebration of National Engineers Week, organized and hosted by the Whiting School of Engineering, begins Friday, Feb. 16 and runs through Friday, Feb. 23 on the Homewood campus.

This year's E-Week offers events including salary negotiating strategy workshops, resume roundtables, a demonstration by Hopkins Baja, and more. View the complete E-Week schedule at https://engineersweek.jhu.edu/schedule/.

E-Week kicks off on Friday afternoon with HopHacks, the annual Johns Hopkins hacking marathon in which students are challenged to develop a new tech solution or product within 36 hours.

The Tower of Power, Hopkins' E-Week's signature event, is set for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20 in the Glass Pavilion. Hosted by Theta Tau, a coed engineering fraternity, and sponsored this year by Bloomberg LP, the annual event challenges teams of Johns Hopkins undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni, as well as students representing several area middle schools, to engineer the tallest possible towers from boxes of uncooked spaghetti and bags of marshmallows. Following the event, attendees and participants will enjoy free pizza and goodie bags. To participate, form a team and register online in advance.
