Transportation Simulation & Career Breakouts
Presented by the ACEC Colorado Scholarship & Education Foundation
In partnership with Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Denver Section and Transportation & Construction Girl
Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021 | 4-5:15 p.m. | Online | Complimentary Registration Required
Registration: Call 303.832.2200 or Send Email Parent/guardian permission required for participants under 18.
An interactive software experience that presents students with traffic congestion problems via a computer simulation. Chris Fasching, PE, a principal consulting engineer at Felsburg Holt & Ullevig, will lead participants through suggested measures that might correct the problem. Once decided, Fasching will help students enter their ideas into the simulation software so that they can then see how their ideas worked. The visitors learn that there are unintended consequences to traffic engineering decisions, and the engineer provides further dialogue about the costs and impacts of the proposed solutions—beyond just how they will function. Following the 45-minute simulation experiment, students may choose to visit one of several “career” breakout rooms hosted by engineers discussing career paths in the engineering field.
NOTE: Limited to 20 student participants.
Video and audio instructions will be sent upon registration.
