Teachers, counselors, advisors - join us to learn about geoengineering!
We invite you to come learn about how the application of earth sciences can improve our world. This workshop will provide you with an understanding of how earth doctors - geotechnical and environmental engineers, geologists, and biologists - protect public and private infrastructure, provide communities with sources of clean water, improve fisheries and other habitats, and clean up contaminated sites. GeoEngineers provides earth science and engineering services for clients in the development, energy, federal, transportation, and water/natural resources markets. GeoEngineers employs more than 320 people in 13 offices nationwide, including about 25 people in Spokane. Their Spokane office includes geotechnical and environmental engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, biologists, and technicians.
During this workshop, GeoEngineers will give attendees an overview of their services and career paths, hands-on demonstrations and activities, and a project site visit (weather permitting). After this workshop, teachers will be equipped to guide and advise students about STEM career opportunities in the earth sciences industry.
Educators are free (GSI* will provide 3 clock hours; pre-registration is required)
