DDC’s STEAM Initiatives team visited PS 126 and introduced the students about the dangers of pollution runoff. The entire curriculum lead up to a showcase where they shared their completed projects with parents, fellow students, staff, and other city officials.
DDC STEAM helps establish a diverse pipeline into the architecture, construction, and engineering professions. Our outreach programs enhance student awareness of the many careers in the built environment from middle school through college. The programs expands learning opportunities for students – particularly women and minorities - who are underrepresented in the scientific and technological fields.
