Welcome to the ACE Team 3 page!
ACE Team 3 Mentors are very excited to start a fresh new term with students coming from various high schools throughout the city. Orientation was a success at the School of the Art Institute. Students learned about scholarships and internships that will be awarded at the end of the year during the final team presentation day. Team 3 students met their mentors, which consist of professionals from Perkins + Will (architecture), Turner Construction Company (construction), Primera (mechanical, electrical, plumbing engineers), and CE Anderson (structural engineers). ACE Team 3 played a game of Two Truths and a Lie so that students and mentors could get to know each other.
Each ACE Team will be working on a specific design project and throughout the term, students will be learning about architecture, construction, and engineering through presentations and activities. Team 3 mentors have some fun activities planned for the term. There will be a scavenger hunt, a trip to the University of Illinois in Urbana, Champaign (UIUC) and Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), and much more.
As mentioned during the orientation, this program is technically not free. Students must bring an open mind along with the desire to learn new things.
