This week we started with a few “brain teasers” to get everyone thinking about multiple ways to solve one problem. Good discussion came out of that, including considering different perspectives of a problem and taking into account all user needs.
After recapping our week 9 activities, we then gave abbreviated presentations that covered what each of our 4 project discipline groups would be working on over the remainder of the ACE program.
Our 4 groups moving forward are:
- Architecture – Interiors
- Architecture – Exterior Wall/”Skin”
- Construction – Scheduling, Logistics, and Physical Model
- Engineering – Structures, Site Design, Building Systems
Students voted on which group they wanted to be in, and the mentors split them into 4 even teams. While the students will spend a lot of time on details within their discipline area, we will also be doing a lot of coordination between groups!
…only 8 days until scholarship applications are due! …15 days until the annual fundraiser luncheon!
