Delivering geotechnical engineering to elementary school children
The American educational system must provide an ever-increasing number of technology workers for the U.S. to maintain its leadership position in the global economy. However, few students are attracted to engineering because they lack the required academic preparation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to study engineering in college.
