WTS Central PA Chapter- Girl Scouts Transportation YOU Club- April 2018 Event

April 30, 2018 05:37 AM

On Monday, April 8, 2018 volunteers from the WTS Central Pennsylvania Chapter and Girl Scouts from the Heart of Pennsylvania Region met to learn about Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Materials as part of the monthly 2018 TransportationYOU Club.

The Girl Scouts started the evening with dessert first by learning about and then feasting on their own handmade batch of asphalt.

They then received a brief introduction to geotechnical engineering where they learned about the who, what, where, when, and why of subsurface exploration and construction.

The Girl Scouts were next tasked with creating their own layers of “earth” to take core samples where they analyzed and discussed the different layers.

Finally, the girls could touch and feel various types of rocks and core samples from across Pennsylvania. They were sent home with activities to demonstrate particle size and soil type to continue their learning.
