The ACE (Architecture, Construction, and Engineering) Mentor Program of Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia will kick off virtually the week of Sept. 14. ACE is a mentoring program where high school students have the opportunity to meet with architects, engineers, and builders to learn about careers in the design and construction industry. Students will gain experience in working on a real-world project and have the opportunity to compete for scholarships to pursue an ACE career beyond high school.
This year the student project will focus on the design of a COVID-19 mobile testing center.
This project will culminate in virtual presentations at the annual scholarship event in February 2021.
The program will operate virtually from three area schools, Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences, Howard High School and Lafayette High School. There will be three open teams for students from any area high school affiliated with EMJ Corporation, Tinker Ma, Inc. and Creative Discovery Museum. For more details on team meetings and to register your students, please go to www.acementor.org.
ACE is also actively recruiting architect, engineer, and construction mentors and support for the 2020-2021 program. You may register as a mentor at www.acementor.org. All mentors are required to complete a background check and mentor training prior to working with students.
