April Hammer, a Newberg resident and geotechnical engineer, visited both of our 4/5 classes yesterday. Mrs. Hammer shared her work as a geotechnical engineer working in both eastern and western Washington. Her work involved gathering and analyzing soil samples to help aid the proper structural designs for buildings in certain areas. Students were treated to an interesting slide presentation as well as a demonstration of what her work involved. Her presentation was an excellent reinforcement to our recent geology studies.
