MLK Students visited the new Bridgestone Americas headquarters downtown and rode the buckhoist up to level 15. After learning about the pour sequence and the process of shoring and reshoring, the students each took home a bag of concrete mix and were challenged to create something that was lasting and had a function. They each tried their hand at pouring a small widget—and in doing so, learned the importance of form release!
This week the team visited HCA where Greg Stein explained how hospitals have to remain online and maintain critical systems despite whatever disasters may strike. It was great for the students to understand “resilience” through this lens of the largest healthcare owner and operator in the country. As they left that meeting, they were challenged with finding and sketching a place in Nashville that has endured and adapted to thrive despite adversity.
