17 Dec T&H Hosts Advanced Boy Scouts Explorer Post
T&H has hosted Explorer Posts with Coastal Georgia Council, Boy Scouts of America 11 years, this week we hosted our first Advanced Explorer Post. Four qualifying juniors and seniors from SCCPSS Schools were chosen to participate in the four-day Advanced Post to “explore” specific paths within civil engineering. The first session introduced students to industrial site design through a site layout activity and a mini-pump station build. For the second session, students met at a T&H-designed industrial park, where they applied their previous lessons in the field. The site visit included a tour of the park, a fire hydrant flow test, observing a 40-foot-deep pump station, and a hands-on geothinQ demo. The students will return for two additional sessions where they will participate in additional site visits with a focus on residential/commercial site design, stormwater analysis, and the benefits of using drones in engineering.
