We love to support students and schools in our community! The Academy for Career Education (ACE) is a tuition-free charter school and trade school in Reno, NV. The aim at ACE is to infuse the standard, high school core-curriculum with career-applicable training methods in construction and engineering.
ACE High School students got hands on experience pouring footings in the field last week! This was part of the school’s building trades program. From ACE website: “Students are given an extraordinary opportunity to build a custom, single-family home from the ground up. To date, ACE students have built nine single-family homes, working on a job site every day in small groups, individually or with an entire class. They perform every aspect of construction including surveying, concrete, rough carpentry, plumbing, electrical, insulation, sheetrock, roofing, finish fixtures, painting and landscaping. Completing a project of this magnitude equips students with valuable skills and discipline to see a job through to the end-right down to hammering the last nail.” Q&D teamed up with 3D Concrete to help students with technical expertise. Way to go, ACE Students!
