Architecture Construction Engineering club is giving students the opportunity to learn more about the world of construction, according to adviser Al Wachutka. He said students are currently meeting to design playgrounds.

Senior Maria Vivone said she utilizes the opportunities the club provides her in order to prepare herself for a future career in the architectural industry.

“I really want to be an architect. They give scholarships if you always show up and have good attendance and if you actually try ,” Vivone said.

According to Wachutka, the program helps bring people within the architecture industry into the school to work alongside students who wish to go to college for ACE related jobs.

“(ACE is a) program that brings together people currently working in the field of architecture, construction, and engineering, to work with high school students to develop modeled prototype a project to compete with other schools, against other schools, in the metro area,” Wachutka said.

Senior Anna Kasper said she does not see herself going into architecture, but simply enjoys meeting new people and learning about architecture.

“My favorite part about the club is really getting to meet new people and just talking about architecture,” Kasper said.

According to Wachutka, the program benefits the students who want to go into a field of work surrounding the industry of construction the most.

“(Students get) a lot of practical experience and understanding what really an engineer does, what the construction industry is about and what architects do,” Wachutka said. “It’s competitive so they get some public speaking skills and (are) working hand in hand with people who are actually doing it.”
