Since 1997 CH2M HILL has supported the National Engineers Week’s Foundation (EWeek) as the firm’s flagship science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education outreach program. Each February hundreds of employees from CH2M HILL offices across North America volunteer their time to serve as mentors, teachers, and judges in a variety of activities, including engineering competitions, technology and science fairs, classroom presentations, hands-on activities, and project site visits. By engaging students in activities that help them understand how science, math, and technology can be used to solve real world problems and make a difference in society, CH2M HILL is helping to inspire the next generation of engineers.
Check out videos of students at Radloff Middle School in Georgia making their own water filtration system during an EWeek event.

Thanks Frank Destadio, a program manager in our water group, for representing CH2M HILL to help inspire the next generation!
