2021-22 EY Challenge # 7

Calling all FUTURE ENGINEERS…It’s EWeek 2022!

Learn about 5 different types of engineers this week, solve the types of problems they solve, and possibly win a prize!  Check back each day this week to find the problems and if you’d like to submit any problems, check with the EY Coordinator at your building. https://www.mathcounts.org/resources/engineers-week

Monday, Feb. 21: Geomatics Engineering

Geomatics engineers collect data and then analyze and interpret it to find solutions  Geomatics engineering plays an important role in construction, transport, communication, mapping and research.

Tuesday, Feb. 22:  Structural Engineering

Structural engineers design and analyze bridges, buildings and even things like concert stages. Environmental factors, what a structure will be used for and what type of weight will be put on it, and how this all might change from day to day before even beginning a design are all things that a structural engineer must consider.

Thursday, Feb. 24: Nuclear Engineering

What if you could harness the energy that is released by reactions within atoms?  That’s what nuclear engineering does!  The energy released by reactions within atoms can be used to generate electricity, power transportation systems, and diagnose and treat illnesses.
