San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering

Written by Alyssa Burley.

On Saturday, March 5, 2016, Project Cornerstone participated in the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering EXPO Day at PETCO Park in Downtown San Diego, CA.

By the end of the festival, Project Cornerstone reached about 1,275 people (including 850 children who made concrete stars and about 425 adults)!  That averages out to be 121 concrete stars every hour!

Visitors to the booth learned about the importance of local construction aggregates and the science behind concrete.

One visitor said his daughter made a concrete star at last year's festival and she insisted they visit Project Cornerstone's booth first, this year.

While mixing the concrete, a young boy exclaimed, "this is so FUN!"

Thank you to all the volunteers that made the festival a success: Crystal Howard, Alyssa Burley, Jamie Metivier, Dionna Odom, James DeCarolis, Kelly Kufa, Milena Kufa, Alexa Fuka, Colton, Cassandra Rodrigue, Alex Sherman, Nick Burley, and Craig de la Torre!
