Exterior Operations Team Joins Laredo CDC for Big Machines Enrichment

The M&O Exterior Operations team visited Laredo CDC to help the students with their "Big Machines" Enrichment. This was an exciting learning opportunity for students to extend their learning further and deeper. The two part session included one day of hands on with the "Big Machines" and the second day was putting the learning into action. After a presentation on the "Big Machines" the students worked together and wrote about their experience, including comparing and contrasting tractors. A big thanks to the Laredo CDC students and staff as well as the M&O Exterior Operations Team!
