Embrace New Opportunities for Student Growth

You can bring this fully developed, project-based curriculum to your high school with the help of local industry firms. Volunteer teams of engineering, design and construction professionals lead your students on a 10-week journey of teamwork, public speaking, problem solving and creativity. Along the way, they’ll be exposed to a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum which highlights the intersection of engineering and the arts.

Our Student Impact Project (SIP) introduces students to the concepts necessary to design and build a model bridge. Each week’s 70-minute session is led by a team of security- and background-vetted industry professionals using our fully developed curriculum, which includes all materials, classroom supplies, workbooks and guides.

Schools and participating teachers are requested to help facilitate the program, including

  • Observe and assist as volunteers use a pre-designed, in-depth, multi-disciplinary curriculum with both oral and written components.
  • Integrate a 10-week program during the curricular day into any STEAM-related class, including all levels of math, science, architecture, and any visual or performing arts class. (Note that SIP is ideally suited to Sophomore and Junior level classes, but all high school grades are encouraged to participate. Even Freshman teams have won past competitions.)
  • Work collaboratively with the volunteer engineers and designers.
  • Attend a two-hour orientation in January.
  • Participate in the Bridge Showcase & Awards Event in April.
