Do You Want to Build a…Highway?

Everyone at Rhea is proud as can be that our own Angelica Perez De la Rosa’s music parody video won an Honorable Mention in a nationwide music video contest sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).  Angelica’s video was one of four winning Honorable Mention among a field of 30 entries.

Angelica rewrote the words to the song “Do you want to build a snowman?” from Disney’s mega-hit FROZEN and created “Do you want to build a highway?” The video was intended to capture what it’s like to be a newly-minted Civil Engineer.

And Angelica (with help from our own Bill Johnson) both acted and sang in the video.

Here’s a link to the video on ASCE’s YouTube channel.

Since submitting the video, we’ve shared it with younger kids we know and have found that it really strikes a chord with grade school children (especially girls who seem to ADORE all things FROZEN).   Maybe Angelica’s little video will inspire a whole new generation of kids to to consider a career in Engineering (or any STEM field).

Consider this a Rhea outreach program to get more young children as passionate about Civil Engineering as we all are.  So feel free to pass this video along to any grade-school FROZEN fan in your life.  People at the office who have shared it with their own kids,  have told us that their kids now sing the alternative Engineering-inspired lyrics instead (which we think is a VERY good thing).

And if you like the video as much as we do, please give it a THUMBS UP or leave a nice comment on YouTube .
