The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry hosted an Engineering Camp, part of the national 'Learning for Life' organization administered by the Hiawatha Seaway Council of the Boy Scouts of America on Friday, July 24, 2009 with 38 campers taking part in workshops and lectures on water flow and geographic information systems.

The campers are middle and high school students. The workshops at ESF culminated a weeklong experience that included visits and seminars at several engineering companies in the Syracuse area.

The daylong program, 8AM - 4PM, included hands-on exercises in GIS and remote sensing technology plus taking measurements of water flow using the college's new hydrology lab.

All activities took place in Baker Laboratory. Workshops and lectures were conducted by Paul Szemkow, Mark Storrings, Dr. Jim Hassett, Mark Fabian, and Eben Pendleton.
