As part of Engineers Week or E-Week, the University of Guam Endowment Foundation, GHD Inc., the Society of American Military Engineers Guam Post and other engineers from the private sector and government will be visiting schools from February 17-21.

The school visits are part of the 14th Annual Discover "E" campaign in which 40,000 engineers throughout the U.S. will reach more than five million students and teachers to spark interest in practical applications of math, science, and technology and increase student interest in these subjects.
