Castille Elementary School Demonstration
By Brad Dybel
The Orange County Branch dazzled 90 second graders and their teachers on the exciting world of civil engineering in an encore classroom visit to Castille Elementary School in Mission Viejo on April 27, 2018. Jenny Mital, Greg Henk, and Brad Dybel took turns describing their favorite parts of civil engineering to the lively youngsters, who then formed small groups to build the tallest structures possible out of only an unlimited supply of spaghetti sticks and miniature marshmallows. The students got real-world experience working in teams, as they imagined, explained, and then tested their unique design ideas.
