AASHTO partners with State Departments of Transportation to provide the TRAC™ & RIDES programs to schools.
The Adopt-A-State sponsorship was created so companies can support their State's TRAC & RIDES program, but more importantly, see results from their efforts. This educational program is designed for kids from kindergarten to high school, with a particular emphasis on those students with math and science skills. These skills are imperative for both educational growth and Civil Engineering. Civil Engineering historically is not the most glamorous of careers, which tends to not appeal strongly to today's youth. The TRAC & RIDES program is designed to bring awareness to the Civil Engineering program, and growing a much needed interest.
Come support the future of your state and watch them grow into Civil Engineers. With your support, teams from the sponsored state will be able to travel to the AASHTO TRAC & RIDES competition held during the AASHTO Spring Meeting.
