ICON project engineers Nick Stone and Tyler Rosburg recently represented ICON Engineering at the Children’s Water Festival in Fort Collins. The festival, which is sponsored by Fort Collins Utilities and Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (NCWCD), hosts 1,800 third graders from public and private schools within the City. The festival provides fun, hands-on activities for the students to learn about and become interested in a wide variety of water related topics.
The ICON Engineering booth utilized a scale flood model to teach the students about the basic principles of watershed hydrology and floodplain management. The students enjoyed interacting with the model and learning along the way. ICON Engineering looks forward to more events like this that educate and excite young students.
