Helping America Meet the Demand for Civil Engineers: AASHTO’s TRAC and Rides Program 2015

America’s highways, railways, bridges, levees and dams are aging. Current and future Civil Engineers will be needed to help preserve and modernize these vital systems that move people, tons of goods, create energy and protect communities from flooding. Helping America to keep pace with the growing demand for Civil Engineers is the motivation behind the TRAC and RIDES program established by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. The TRAC and RIDES program provides curriculum to school systems for use in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math or (STEM) classes beginning in kindergarten through high school.  The goal is to inspire students to consider a career in Civil Engineering.  Watch this video to learn how TRAC and RIDES can benefit your students in your school system.
