Explorers

Students Invited to Explore Careers at Spicer Group

Spicer Group is excited to announce the return of an Explorer Program in our Saginaw office. Our goal is to share career exploration and information with students who have an interest in the fields of civil engineering, land surveying and/or information technologies. Students will have opportunities to learn more about career areas related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

This program is open to all high school students. We are planning five sessions to be held from 5:00 to 6:30 pm, from October 2018 through March 2019. Sessions will be held in our Saginaw office at 230 S. Washington Ave., Saginaw, MI.  Each session will focus on a different area within the civil engineering and/or land surveying fields.

Join us on October 24th, 2018 for our first session with speaker Eric Barden, Professional Surveyor. Eric will share the world of land surveying, mobile mapping, and will show the role new technologies play in a land surveyor's daily work life.

Learn more about this career path and others related to civil engineering and information technology. Click on the Download Application button in the upper right-hand corner to sign up. Cost will be $10 per student, $5 per returning student, with Spicer Group picking up all additional costs, and pizza will be served. The program is limited to the first 40 students who register.
