ACE Mentor Program Tours Alston Ridge Middle School

We enjoyed participating in the ACE Mentor Program yesterday afternoon for a tour of M16 - Alston Ridge Middle School in Cary. The construction is between 65 and 70% complete and the the students got to see a construction site in full swing. Thanks to Barnhill Constrction Company for hosting the event and PDC for providing insight on the PME Design. It’s great to see so many young people interested in construction, architecture, and engineering!

From the ACE website: “High school students in the Raleigh/Durham area can now benefit from a nationwide program designed to introduce them to the wide range of career opportunities open to young people in architecture, construction, engineering, and related areas of the building design and construction industry. At weekly meetings, student teams work directly with professionals from leading area firms, who volunteer their time to mentor the teams as they design hypothetical projects, tour local construction sites, and visit architectural, engineering and construction offices.”
