Construction Expo 2018

The Expo gives students the opportunity to operate construction equipment, explore new technology, and get hands on experience using construction related tools. Our Expo started fairly small a couple of years ago, with students getting the opportunity to operate a small variety of earth-moving equipment. Crane and pump truck activities have been added, as well as live demonstrations of concrete placement and finishing techniques.
