One of MnDOT’s Engineers presented to three Introduction to Engineering classrooms at Washburn High School in Minneapolis on Jan. 11. During the presentation, students learned about Engineering as a career, how to become an Engineer, and the different types of Engineers. Following the presentation, students were divided up into two groups to do an interactive interchange activity to learn about the extensive planning involved in designing and building highway interchanges.
MnDOT will continue working with surrounding schools on real-world learning, across a variety of disciplines. Reach out to our project team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in MnDOT working with your school or student community.
