#KCSTI Day 10: Federal #Railroad Administration & US Army Corps of #Engineers

Friday, June 26, 2015

Students started Day 10 off at the Swinney Recreation Center shooting some hoops and playing volleyball.

The students then heard a presentation from the Federal Railroad Administration. They learned about rail safety and how they can protect themselves while driving across railroad tracks.

After lunch, the participants participated in a presentation from the US Army Corps of Engineers. They learned about the function and purpose of the Corps. Specifically, they learned about concrete mixing. They were able to mix their own concrete too, which will be strength-tested once it dries.

The students ended the day finishing their Roobuilder bridge projects.
