Institute to Host Building Sciences Pavilion at USA Science and Engineering Festival

Invites Building Industry Organizations to Participate

Highlighting its commitment to introducing the next generation of building industry professionals to careers in the building sciences, the National Institute of Building Sciences will take part in the 2016 USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., April 16-17, 2016, by hosting a Building Sciences Pavilion at the event. The Institute is reaching out to other building industry organizations to invite them to get involved.

The continued availability of a robust and qualified science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a concern for many people in the building industry. The USA Science and Engineering Festival brings together interested organizations from across the STEM, as well as the science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM), spectrums. The Building Sciences Pavilion provides an opportunity for industry groups to highlight their individual efforts as well as the importance of the building industry as a whole.

The Institute will be highlighting its Mars City Facility Operations (Ops) Challenge at the Festival. Developed in partnership with the Total Learning Research Institute and NASA, this STEM educational program geared toward introducing high school and community college students to building sciences is rolling out in high schools later this year.

In addition, the Institute, which plans to offer materials at the Festival highlighting the numerous disciplines that make up the building industry and the many opportunities for exciting careers, will be organizing an industry STEM committee to facilitate the coordination of messaging and content.

Above and beyond the Festival, there are numerous ways for industry organizations interested in getting involved to participate in the STEM effort. From expanding the materials available on the WBDG Whole Building Design Guide® web portal to adding interviews and information about career opportunities to the Mars City Career Center, the Institute is encouraging industry organizations to get involved. The continued availability of a robust and qualified STEM workforce depends on it.
