The Transportation and Civil Engineering (TRAC - http://www.trac.net) Program is the hands-on education program of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). TRAC is made available to secondary schools (high schools and Junior high schools) through regional centers where the Departments of Transportation (DOTs) work in partnership with other government organizations, universities, non-profit organizations, and private industry. At it's most basic level, TRAC is a program designed for integration into science, math, and social studies classes.

In actual practice, TRAC sends volunteer Transportation professionals into secondary schools with TRAC PAC. This consists of a computer, electronic data collection and analysis instruments, hands-on modeling materials, and more than three dozen activities based on real-world transportation problems.

By engaging students in solving real-world problems, TRAC connects kids to the work world of transportation. And TRAC's specific focus of improving work force diversity helps resolving one of the most pressing problems faced by this predominately white male profession: how to draw talented women and minorities into the field of transportation.
