Todd Wilson, Planner/Inspector/Analyst II, partnered with Lansing’s Information Technology Empowerment Center (ITEC) to assist with the design, construction and launch of their new TechTransport Bus.

Completely renovating a vehicle donated by Dean Transportation, the bus is designed to bring science, technology and engineering mathematics (STEM) education to Lansing-area residents with limited access to home computers and Internet.

ITEC’s Executive Director Kirk Riley first requested Wilson become project manager nine months ago. At the time, the inside of the bus had nothing but a few staples remaining in the flooring from pulled up carpet, and an old refrigerator that was left behind in the gutting process.

See how Wilson and ITEC transformed a charter bus to a learning center in the video below.
