Youth Exploration Program Kicks Off for 2022
The DRPA’s Youth Exploration Program (YEP) recently kicked off its 6-week “Introduction to Engineering” Program with Chief Engineer, Mike Venuto, speaking with 8th graders at LEAP Academy University Charter School in Camden, NJ.
On October 17, students participated in the Tower of Power challenge. The STEAM-focused team-building activity tasked students to build the tallest, sturdiest marshmallow structures while learning engineering and design concepts from DRPA engineers.
YEP is a community education initiative coinciding with school STEAM programs, designed to promote awareness and stimulate the interest of middle and high school students by providing a platform to explore transportation, bridge, engineering and safety industries.
