Waterbury high school students interested in a possible career in architecture, construction or engineering have an opportunity to participate in a special after-school program called ACE (which stands for Architecture, Construction and Engineering!) This is a national program designed to introduce them to the wide range of career opportunities in these fields by working with professionals in the building, design and construction industry. Participants will work on a team project, visit construction sites and more!
