Construction Academy: November

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.

Construction Academy: October

CCDI teamed up with North Tech High School and the Construction Innovations program for our October Construction Academy. The Clayco trait of the day was “Teamwork.” The North Tech seniors lead the discussion on safety and how to use hand tools before they broke off into groups to complete a team building carpentry project. We had special visitors from the Nine Network of Public Media who filmed our students in action. CCDI and North Tech are proud to be partners with the American Graduate program. Big thank you to Mr. Hanneken and the North Tech seniors for all their preparation, hard work, and leadership for this academy session.
