Mark Your Calendars – Goodyear’s 13th Annual Engineering Career Day
Saturday April 20th, 2013 8:00am to 2:30pm
Firestone High School: 333 Rampart Avenue; Akron, OH 44313
I am pleased to announce that registration has begun for Goodyear’s 13th annual Engineering Career Day for Young Women and Men. On behalf of the Engineering Career Day planning committee, I cordially invite you and your colleagues to register your students in grades 6 through 12 to participate in this free and fun event. The deadline for registration is March 15th, so act quickly to reserve your spot.
Our 2013 event promises to be another great year with the continuation of significant upgrades to our program, including a new hands-on activity, the introduction of middle school grant opportunities, and continued giving of nearly $40,000 in monetary awards.
The mission of Goodyear’s Engineering Career Day (ECD) is to spread excitement about engineering, while providing meaningful, yet fun activities that capture student’s attention and increase their knowledge of engineering principles. Goodyear associates, in partnership with volunteers from more than 20 organizations in the Northeastern Ohio business community are continuing their efforts in promoting this mission.
In addition to the efforts of our volunteers, students will be exposed to the purpose of ECD through a myriad of exciting activities, including a hands-on engineering challenge that puts a new spin on the old egg drop challenge.
High school seniors can apply for up to $5,000 in college scholarships, while middle school teachers can apply for one of five $500 grants for use in any science, technology, engineering or math education program. $15,000 in grant money is up for grabs between the high schools that score in the top 3 after our competitive elements – video, participation, hands-on, and STEM challenge.

I look forward to seeing each of you on April 20th!
