    Road Building with Brentwood Elementary 1st Grade Classes 

    A teacher at Brentwood Elementary in Plainfield reached out to Banning Engineering asking us to talk about engineering during her science class. Mark Butler and Pete Rusche of Banning found a fun way by means of a class demonstration on how a road is built.  They used various candies to build the layers of a road within a small-scale Plexiglas box.  They had a few slides to show pictures of a real road being built.  They also called on a few volunteers to help in class and handed out some kid-sized plastic hard hats. It was a great event, and the kids had a lot of fun gaining some new knowledge.

    2021 Quaker Day Parade 

    As proud members of the Plainfield community, Banning Engineering employees participated in the 2021 Quaker Day Parade. Employees participated in building the Love Your Neighbor-themed float, as well as parade day activities. Banning employees and family members rode on the float, drove ATVs, and passed candy out to community members. This was an awesome opportunity to be a part of the great community that Plainfield is.
