2020 LEARNING LABS

ACAI will need outside lab , once again with electric . we will be bringing in a small roller just like in the past years
Archer WesternHave kids learn how to tie rebar by having them suit up and put on belts & PPE and tie a rebar cage.
AtkinsAn overview and demonstration on the ever growing and evolving ITS industry and the North Florida Transportation Management Center. Learning lab will cover everything from design, construction, operations, maintenance and special projects.
Cal-Tech Testing, Inc.Display of Drill Rig with props Explaining Geo Tech work and process
CHW, Inc.We will conduct hands-on demonstration; teaching measuring utilizing pacing, conventional measuring methods, and modern equipment to determine distances, angles, and elevations. The students will learn the difference between horizontal and vertical alignments, and how survey is incorporated into almost every aspect of construction. From design through construction, and "as-builting".
CSI GeoPresentation followed by putting on safety gear and hoisting up guests who would like to participate.
DRMP, Inc.Teaching basic elements of Bridge Design & Structural Engineering
DRMP, Inc.Basic instruction on the topic of Subsurface Utility Engineering
ECS Florida, LLCECS will be presenting a “Concrete Cookies” Learning Lab that is a general discussion on concrete, concrete mixing, concrete testing, and concrete failures. The students will learn that concrete is made from Aggregate/Sand, Portland Cement, and Water/Admixtures via PowerPoint presentation and speaker. The students will then break into groups to whip up “concrete” cookies with graham cracker crumbs (Aggregate / Sand), powdered sugar (Portland Cement) and a liquid mixture of orange juice concentrate, corn syrup, and gray food coloring (Water / Admixtures). The end result is an edible concrete cookie. Poor mixing of ingredients may result in a cookie being too wet or too dry. After the cookie is made we return to the PowerPoint to discuss potential career paths at ECS with and without a college degree. We discuss details on titles, salary and growth potential. The focus is for our Construction Materials Testing Department. The learning lab is generally 15 minutes and the last 5 minutes we take questions and show samples or actual concrete.
Faller, Davis & Associates, Inc.Faller Davis will be demonstrating how traffic data is collected using video detection, how to perform a stop sign delay study, and a speed study.
FDOTLab will present the materials and equipment used in concrete production and testing. May involve mixing of concrete cylinders.

JEAJEA utilizes and leverages varying technology to mitigate the impact of pipe installation to our customers. By using a directional drill. up to 400' of pipe can be installed in a day, with two small excavations as opposed to conventional trench installation. This saves time, rehabilitation costs and customer inconvenience. We are able to get newly installed mains in service sooner in an effort to maintain system reliability and integrity.
JEAIn this lab, we will demonstrate the procedures for installing and maintaining transformers and distribution lines. Emphasis will be on the skills required to perform the installation as well as the path to achieving those skills. Safety will always be of paramount importance.
