STEM Career Day at Denham-Blythe a success

In June, Denham-Blythe hosted the annual “Grow from Within” STEM career day for 23 local middle and high school students interested in Engineering and other construction careers at the Lexington headquarters in Lexington, Ky. Presentations and experiments were shown throughout the day by mechanical, civil, structural, and electrical engineers as well as architects.

Several breakout sessions and activities for students included an introduction to architectural model building, a drone demonstration, 3D scanning and wooden beam demonstrations, and other STEM-related construction uses.

It is hoped that the event will inspire students to consider choosing STEM careers in the construction industry for the future.
