We have many things going on this month during Engineers Week, now rebranded as EWEEK. First, we encourage you to participate in the banquets hosted by the two engineering umbrella organizations in our area. It is a good opportunity to get to know some of the other science, engineering, and business people in our area.

We will continue our contest this year, the CO2 jet powered model dragster races, to be held on Sunday, February 19 during Celebrating Engineering Ingenuity Day at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond. It is primarily for grade and high school students, but it is open to everyone. We will also have an ASM informational table in the open exhibit space, so feel free to stop by or volunteer to help with questions from the attendees. See the separate chapter website page for more information on the contest.

The Richmond Joint Engineers Council's (RJEC) Engineers Week Banquet will be held on Thursday, February 23 at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. The featured speaker will be Jessica Foley, PhD, the Chief Scientific Officer for the Focused Ultrasound Foundation. Please see their web site for more information on our speaker and on focused ultrasound (a surgical procedure focusing over 1100 ultrasound sources to enable non-invasive, deep brain and body surgical procedures.) The Engineer of the Year Award winner is Wei Zhang, PhD, of Virginia Commonwealth University, and the Dr. Rodney E. Hanneman Community Service Award winner is Mr. Phil Powell, PE, of Dominion Resources (Retired). Reservations can be made, and more information is available, on the RJEC web site. A paper reservation form for payment by check is available here.

The Peninsula Engineers Council's (PEC) annual Engineering Career Day will occur over two days, Thursday and Friday, February 23 and 24.
