ESD: Supporting Tomorrow’s Engineers Today

ESD is a proud sponsor of this year’s Engineers Week Expo, a chance for kindergarten through 12th-grade students to explore various engineering and science activities.

The expo will be presented by the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) – Chicago, an organization focused on increasing the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. It will take place this weekend at Lindblom High School in Chicago. ESD will have representatives on hand ready to answer questions from students interested in learning more about engineering and its role in the built environment industry.

Some workshops include Future World Buildings, World of Polymers, and the Electromagnetic Swings for grade school students. There will also be a college panel and Speed Networking session for high school students. EXPO participants joining ESD at the event include Argonne, Ford, Boeing, Constellation, Harting, Fermilab, Google, UL, Radio Flyer, and Hitachi Systems.

Support of the 2023 Engineers Week Expo is another example of ESD’s commitment to supporting education and the future of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. ESD also supports programs like Ace Mentor and the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School Corporate Work-Study Program which offer college-bound students an understanding of career possibilities, real-life and real-work experience, confidence in working with others, and enthusiasm for the part they can play in the industry.

Sponsoring events such as the Engineers Week Expo demonstrates ESD’s support of our community and efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion as part of the company’s overall mission to improve society through the built environment.
