HDR Video Highlights Students’ Views on STEM Careers During Engineering Week

HDR held a roundtable discussion with 65 STEM students in Omaha last fall to talk about STEM careers. For Engineer’s Week, the firm is showing a video based on the event on social media.

The students, who attend the STEM Academy at Omaha North High School, met with HDR’s Lake Cunningham improvements and development team to get a real-life look at STEM fields. They were joined by representatives from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, City of Omaha, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and industry partners.

“I hope the kids took away the understanding that these opportunities are only going to grow for them,” said HDR’s Andy Yosten, director of mechanical engineering and co-chair of the STEM Academy advisory board. “If they see something that they’re passionate about, grab onto it, put all their energy and effort into it, they’re going to be quite successful.”
