ACE is an after school program that introduces you to careers in architecture, construction management, engineering and other disciplines. As a participant, you will join a team of other students led by adult mentors who are practicing industry professionals. ACE is not about merely describing specific professions; it is about immersing you in the profession by engaging you in actual building projects. These can range from new schools and mixed-use developments to amphitheaters and temporary housing for movie stars on location. You will visit professional offices, job sites and other relevant locations. You will discuss the same issues, and perform the same tasks, as if you worked in the industry. ACE gives you a practical hands-on view of how abstract concepts are transformed into the buildings that make up our everyday reality.
Meetings: Every Thursday from 4:30pm-6:30pm October through April
