In Queens: The New York Hall of Science at 47-01 111th Street, Queens, NY 11368, has designated this Presidents' Day, February 17,20124 Engineering Day, and the whole week, Engineering Week. with different days designated to various types of engineering, like civil, nano, chemical, and mechanical. All the special programs are included with standard admission.

ASTC membership also gets you into the Intrepid Air and Space Museum. It has designated this week "Kids' Week."
