At the latest CCDI Construction Academy class, students focused on the Clayco trait of “Courage” and how it translates into the daily tasks that happen in construction. Lennel Hunter and Dominic Norton of Clayco took the students through Virtual Design Construction and how VDC helps the construction process.
Students then broke up into teams to practice some design and construction with a marshmallows and toothpick exercise that challenged them see which team could build the highest standing structure.
The class finished with the students polishing up their leadership skills by identifying and defining core values, and creating elevator pitches. Students got to practice their public speaking skills by sharing their elevator pitches in front of their peers.
