Teton County School District and local students are welcoming multiple new bus shelters this winter, after construction was finished fall of 2019.
In the spring of 2018 Nelson Engineering helped local high school students Alex Coosaia & Evan McHugh, with help from the FabLab Director Samantha Smith bring their design ideas into fruition. From a model concept dreamed up in the classroom, Nelson Engineering’s Structural team took that model and helped the JHHS students bring that concept to life.
The students presented their idea to the START bus board, and once approved they collaborated with Structural Engineers to implement their design intentions.
With two Rigid steel frames for structural support, and glass all around to help warm and light the space; the new bus shelters provide a safe shelter from the weather.
The bench seating also dreamed up by the High School students allows a place to rest those weary legs.
This project was a collaboration of the Teton County School District, the Jackson Hole high school students, JHHS FabLab, & START Bus.
