To commemorate National Infrastructure Week on May 20, engineers from AECOM and Dallas Water Utilities hosted a “pop-up” classroom event focused on infrastructure and STEM programs at CityLab High School.
The event took place on Big Thought’s Dallas City of Learning Mobile Tech XPerience (MXP), a retrofitted RV equipped with the latest technology to bring accessible STEM learning directly to youth. Students had a chance to be an engineer for the day and participate in interactive STEM activities alongside AECOM engineers and clients as they learned about infrastructure design.
This program is was to spark interest and curiosity in STEM careers, as well give students a deeper understanding of the city’s surrounding infrastructure and how its design impacts their daily lives.
National Infrastructure Week is May 13–20.
