USACE Collaborates with Schools to Careers Partnership

The USACE’s New England District has once again collaborated with the Schools to Careers Partnership to sponsor a daylong event as part of the Program’s three-day Bioengineering Symposium.

“This is the second year the District has done a full site tour – last year we toured Muddy River – but this is the fourth year we have participated in the overall event,” said Mark Anderson, STEM Coordinator for the New England District. “The first two years were just a USACE 101 discussion with the students.”

Twenty-two 10th and 11th grade students gave up some of their April vacation to attend the symposium. The students came from a variety of schools to include Holbrook, Blue Hills Regional Technical, Avon, Canton, Dedham, Milton, Norwood and Randolph.

New England District team members started the day by meeting the students at the Blue Hill Regional Technical High School for a USACE 101 discussion.

“Following the briefing, students traveled to New Bedford, Massachusetts and received a tour of the entire New Bedford Harbor Superfund site before returning home,” said Anderson.

The educational partnership agreement between the District and the School to Careers Partnership has been in place since July 28, 2014. The agreement is one of several the District has with local educational institutions. The partnership is in keeping with the Corps of Engineers objectives to shape the workforce of the future and to increase STEM and Wounded Warrior initiatives, USACE said.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
