Explore Engineering 2017Explorer Posts, sponsored by The Boy Scouts of America, introduce students (age 14 to 20) to career fields and provides them with the resources and opportunities to develop skills in their interested fields. Students experience hands-on learning under the mentor-ship of adult volunteers. Also known as Career Exploring and Learning for Life, the program provides the encouraging relationships and personal development to increase student success and wellbeing.

Each spring, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Durham School hosts an annual Explorer Post at The Peter Kiewit Institute on Scott Campus at UNO. This Explorer Post incorporates hands-on activities in a higher education setting with current students and professors from the Durham School. Explorers are provided hands-on, engineering focused opportunities to learn about architectural engineering, construction engineering, and construction management along with structural, electrical, mechanical, lighting, and acoustical design.
