Black & Veatch

Black & Veatch is a leading engineering, consulting and construction company. We are employee-owned and have more than 100 offices worldwide. Black & Veatch continues our longstanding commitment to students through our growSTEM initiative, which includes support to nonprofits providing STEM programming ranging from earth and environmental science to making/DIY to robotics, rocketry and technology.

The Explorer Post is a program sponsored by Black & Veatch as part of Learning for Life of Kansas City. The program exposes 14-to-19-year-old students who are interested in STEM to the various disciplines of engineering through presentations, hands-on activities, engineering tours, and community service events supported by Black & Veatch. Watch for registration sign ups in late summer.
