EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC Builds on Its Commitment to Community Service
Hunt Valley, Maryland (9 March 2018)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that its employees continue to generously contribute their time and energy to promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education as well as workforce development for today’s green economy. Such volunteer support was clearly evident last month when EA’s Maryland-based employees hosted two events: a 1-day STEM learning experience for high school students and an interview workshop for graduates of Baltimore Center for Green Careers (BCGC) brownfields training program.
For the 16th consecutive year, local high school students collaborated with EA professionals for a day and completed a simulated environmental project as part of Day with an Engineer. The students performed experiments in EA’s Ecotoxicology Laboratory, participated in equipment demonstrations, conducted research, and presented their solution to a panel for critique. More than 20 EA employees and 13 students participated in the event, which is annually sponsored by the Baltimore Post of the Society of American Military Engineers and held in conjunction with National Engineers Week.
Also in February, EA employees hosted one-on-one mock interviews for 15 BCGC graduates with the help of members of the Environment Committee of the American Council of Engineering Companies, Maryland. In addition to improving their interview skills and refining their resumes, the trainees toured EA’s Ecotoxicology Laboratory, received an introduction to Geographic Information Systems, and increased their knowledge of field sampling techniques. EA’s involvement with BCGC spans 15 years and this marked the 5th interview session hosted by EA.
“At EA, we are committed to supporting and being involved in our local communities and promoting environmental understanding,” stated Brian Lesinski, Senior Vice President and Director of Corporate Social Responsibility. “We are so proud of EA’s commitment to sponsoring outstanding programs like Day with an Engineer and BCGC’s workforce development and look forward to supporting similar activities in the future.”
