Schaefer’s internal culture promotes continuous learning, and teaching, through mentorship and in-house training seminars. We’re passionate about what we do, and share it both internally and externally whenever we can.
As a Structural Engineers Association of Ohio partner, Schaefer structural engineers Fae Garstang and Bernie Kooi participated in the 2016 Ohio State Fair Ohio Technology and Engineering Educators Association (OTTEA) Technology and Engineering Showcase. The structures booth was awarded the Best Technology Exhibit for its presentation of two interactive models that demonstrated various mechanisms structures use to resist lateral loads; shear walls, tension and compression braces, and guy-wires.
The OTEEA Technology and Engineering Showcase features student projects, provides educational activities for families and offers opportunities to learn from professionals in the industry.
