Last Wednesday the members of the Paris Studio participated in the final Active Learning Field Excursion of the semester. École Spéciale des Travaux Publics, du Bâtiment et de l’industrie (ESTP) is a public works and infrastructure school located just outside the Paris city limits. ESTP has a roadway materials lab which opened its doors to the Paris Studio to do an Asphalt Lab during their visit. Thank you to ESTP, Dr. Layella Ziyani, and Prof. Jamie Wiens for hosting the Paris Studio and lending their time to show our students a new side of material research!
