Today, November 11, 2021, we hosted the Denison Youth Leadership Academy at our office!
We began with a tour of, spoke about our work, showed a set of civil engineering plans from a project in Denison and described the education requirements to be an engineer. Finally, we challenged the students to design and construct a tower in 45 minutes.
Each group received $5.00, a tablet of paper for their design schematic and a list of supplies with prices. With 15 minutes left, a surprise challenge was announced! The tower had to withstand a hurricane (fan)!
Thank you, Josh Massey, for asking us to participate in the construction day for the academy. We had fun hosting the students!
