Suffolk Construction is partnering with a number of organizations to introduce young students to STEM careers through the lens of construction. In February, middle school students from DREAM visited Suffolk’s New York office and had the opportunity to explore the Smart Lab. Students donned a VR headset that placed them inside a hotel, where they were able to design their own hotel rooms. Students also worked with Suffolk employees to build towers using gummy bears and toothpicks to learn fundamental building skills.

Throughout the event, Suffolk team members shared their career trajectories, from engineering and construction management to architecture and computer science.
