For the second consecutive year, the PS&S team helped celebrate National Engineers Week, a yearly event designed to raise awareness and showcase the marvels of engineering. PS&S helped sponsor the event at the Liberty Science Center which was hosted by The North Jersey Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
Over the two days at the LSC, more than 300 children aged 5-13 participated at the PS&S table working on an augmented reality sandbox. This interactive table uses sand and 3-D visualization applications to create a virtual topography which is projected on a large screen so the kids could watch their experiments come to life.
Erika Bocian led the PS&S team and was joined by Rita Exposito, Brian Liebeskind, Pietro Di Tillio, Chris Zuidema, Kristin Baltadonis, Leonardo Afanador, David Marko and Gregory Ranft. Special assistance was provided by Erika’s son Ethan who helped make the PS&S table the place to be!
