K-12 Workforce Development in Transportation Engineering at FIU

The goals of this project were to (1) improve interest and comfort level of K-12 students and families with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects as applied to Transportation Engineering; and (2) develop a STEM education and training dissemination program focusing on transportation engineering. The faculty and students at Florida International University (FIU) conducted activities geared for the K-12 pipeline and families to systematically enhance the quality and excellence in STEM education, specifically addressing transportation related topics and how scientific and engineering principles are used in the transportation field. A series of hands on activities were developed to promote STEM education and training program in Transportation Engineering. The activities were used during outreach activities with elementary, middle and high school students.
