Jobs at the MWRA That Use S.T.E.M.

There are many jobs at the MWRA that use S.T.E.M. Such as scientist.

A scientist uses science and technology. A scientist uses science to test and clean the water. A scientists uses technology to research. If a scientist didn’t know science we wouldn’t have clean water to drink.

Engineer is another job that works at the MWRA. Engineers use engineering to do their jobs. Engineers fix the pipes so there are not leaks. If engineers didn’t know how to engineer there would be leaks in the pipes. Also people wouldn’t get enough water.

Another job that works at the MWRA is a pipe fitter. A pipe fitter uses math to connect the pipes together. The subject pipe fitters use is area and perimeter. If pipe fitters didn’t know math we wouldn’t have pipes for the water to come to us. That is why jobs at the MWRA need to know S.T.E.M.
