Enniss Inc. is a unique construction company that has a variety of divisions that include sand and material sales, and construction material recycling. Students toured the Lakeside facility where they learned about the quarry, processing and recycling plant.
The students broke into small groups and visited various stations.
Students learn about the heavy equipment used at the facility.
They learned about asphalt and broke open geodes.
They blended their own amended soil and planted a flower, which they were able to take home.
Students also made their own small batches of concrete and formed them into various shapes using silicone molds.
All the students, teachers and parents enjoyed the hands-on field trip.
Thank you to Enniss Inc. for opening your facility to these students.
