A local business is marrying art with engineering—a feat that’s made it one of the most in-demand firms in the nation when it comes to building industrial bridges. Wednesday the Figg Engineering group stopped at Trinity Catholic School to show kids how it’s done.
About 50 kids are in a large hall at Trinity Catholic School and engineer Jason Stauffer is in the middle of about 10 of them. He’s holding up pieces of reinforced steel coated in blue and green paint. The coating helps prevent rust. Stauffer is showing students how the steel is used to reinforce and construct bridges.
