Mississippi teachers recently attended the Mississippi Department of Transportation’s Transportation and Civil Engineering, or TRAC, program training. The training was led by National Board Certified teachers who are using the TRAC program actively at their school. MDOT’s program introduces students to career opportunities in engineering and teaches students how to apply math and science concepts to resolve engineering barriers in the transportation system. The program uses two modules, SimCity and Bridge Builder.
