RS&H associates recently participated in, “Leveraging Design-Build Best Practices in a Vertical Market,” a panel hosted by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) Florida Region Gulf Coast Chapter. Geared toward architects/engineers, builders, and owners, the panel discussion focused on the design-build method, process, and best practices in project delivery.
After RS&H engineers Priscilla Brubeck and Maria Ruiz completed a STEM workshop for teen and pre-teen girls, a fifth grader walked up to the pair and told them she wanted to be a computer engineer.
“At that age, I didn’t even know what an engineer was,” Priscilla said. “It’s so important to plant that seed early on in kids’ – especially girls’ – lives.”
That is exactly what Priscilla, Maria, and other RS&H associates are trying to do, as they kick the company’s participation in STEM workshops into high gear.
