The Southwestern Division celebrated Take your Sons and Daughters to Work Day at the Division headquarters in Dallas April 25. More than 20 children ranging in ages from 5 to 16 participated in fun learning activites led by Division employees. Activities included building a roller-coaster out of paper rolls to demonstrate how gravity works, dropping raisins in water and soda to demonstrate buoyancy, creating animated drawings, a lesson in photosynthesis and a display of how drones, 3-D mapping and computers work. The mission of the days' events is to engage the students about science, technology, engineering and math, and teach them about the many missions of the Corps of Engineers.
