Students Get Hands-on Experience at REI

On Wednesday, April 15th, students from Mosinee High School visitedREI Engineering, Inc. as part of the Careers in Action (CIA) Day.

CIA Day is a program designed to give High School students a behind the scenes look at the local business world. It is a true model for REI’s desire for strong business and academic partnerships. It accomplishes the community issue of recruiting local talent and retaining them for our future.

At REI Engineering, the students explored careers in Civil Engineering, Environmental/Safety Consulting and Land Surveying through a series of learning station activities that included both discussion platforms and hands-on experience. The students also had the opportunity to ask REI professionals about their careers and learn more about local projects.

 

REI Engineering created three specific stations for the students to explore. The Civil Engineering and CADD exercise offers insight into the intricate activities involving the designing of an athletic complex using Mosinee’s own Mosinee Community Athletic Complex. There is an exciting hands-on activity exploring the finite capabilities of a Total Station and Global Positioning System (GPS) unit used by Land Surveyors. Students also participate in a water sampling activity directed by REI’s Environmental/Safety Team.
