Help launch a new NMDOT initiative to educate and attract future transportation professionals through a hands-on learning program at New Mexico high schools: the AASHTO STEM Outreach Solutions program. NMDOT will implement the STEM Outreach Solutions program at several high schools in New Mexico. The STEM Outreach Solutions program curriculum supports national Common Core standards and is designed for use in science, technology, engineering, and math courses. NMDOT engineers and staff can offer their support in the classrooms by demonstrating how the STEM Outreach Solutions program activities work, helping with the projects, and providing role models who can answer questions about transportation careers. Their involvement and leadership can help students understand the connections between concepts learned in the classroom and how those concepts are applied in practice.
