From MaryBeth Lima at Louisiana State University about the playground build on the last day of the 2016 EPICS Faculty workshop.
The Lasalle Elementary playground is finished! We had approximately 100 volunteers over the past two days working in the hot weather (heat indexes were 100+) to finish. We were buoyed by the sweat equity contributed by engineering faculty members from around the world and a number of Lasalle Elementary parents and teachers. I am especially thankful to current and former members of the LSU Community Playground Project Research and Design Team for their inspiration and hard work! Now we're back to work on funding for the next one!
