Many Estructure engineers volunteer to work with Engineers Alliance for the Arts (EAA), a non-profit with a goal to teach high school students about the art and engineering of bridges during a ten -week education program. Working with students in the classroom, Estructure’s professionals teach an engineering curriculum and guides students through a design and construction process that is very similar to a real-life bridge project.
