Educators Tour of the 2nd Ave Subway Line

2nd Ave Subway Line

Presented By


New York's history is defined by its geology, ever changing demographics and intense demand for work and play.  Combined with the ever mounting pressure to reduce the environmental footprint, the infrastructure required to supply all of its' human, animal, and plant residents with the basics of life present a civil engineering challenge of enormous magnitude.  For an educator though, those challenges provide a teachable moment on every street corner.

The Second Avenue Subway is just one of the major infrastructure projects overseen by the construction firm SKANSKA.  Educators can get an inside tour (literally) of the site and learn about how engineers plan such complex projects.  This field trip is co-sponsored by SKANSKA, Math for America, and the New York Academy of Sciences.

The tour will be led by SKANSKA.
