The SAME Denver Metropolitan Post has completed three years of sponsorship and operation of Explorer Post 827, an Explorer Post specializing in engineering for young women and men ages 14 to 22. Operating under the Boy Scouts of America Learning for Life Program, 32 youth explored careers in structural engineering, architecture, hydrology, geology, mechanical engineering and computer engineering during the 2011 session. SAME Sustaining Member Companies and other organizations who sponsored or contributed to meetings include HDR, Leo A Daly, Colorado School of Mines, Synthes USA, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
Several of the nearly 100 youth who have participated in the SAME Denver Metro Post-sponsored Engineering Explorer program over the last three years are now pursuing engineering degrees. America’s youth are the future of our nation, and introducing our brightest and most capable young women and men to careers in engineering helps assure America’s greatness for future generations.
