Presentations on Dredging at Maritime and Logistics Youth Expo

The Port Houston Small Business and Maritime Education Outreach Department participated at the 2017 Maritime and Logistics Youth Expo held at the San Jacinto College Maritime Technology and Training Center on April 28.

Nearly 700 students attended the expo, learning about different careers in the maritime and logistics industries, Port Houston said in its announcement.

The expo featured presentations by mariners on the topics of towboats, harbor tugs, barges, dredging, survey vessels and maritime salvage equipment.

“We had a record turnout of students, which made the event a success,” said Gilda Ramirez, Port Houston senior director for small business and education outreach.

The event is supported by the Port of Houston Partners in Maritime Education Program and is co-sponsored by Harris County Precinct 2, the Houston Pilots, San Jacinto College and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.
