November 12, 2015: Engineering Intro & Scavenger Hunt at HNTB
Tonight’s meeting was held at HNTB’s office, where we first had a delicious Italian Beef dinner! Then, the craziness broke loose! Students and Mentors went around the loop on a scavenger hunt to take group photos in front of a list of important Chicago landmarks in an epic battle to win Starbucks gift cards. Teams were battling against not only each other, but THE CLOCK! Midway through, the Mentors decided to assemble a super team of their own, and proceeded to dominate the competition. But in the end, it was Team 3 that was victorious! HNTB gave an introductory presentation to engineering and some of the work they do as a civil engineering firm.
