Last week, the ACE Mentoring team joined up with Diana Degenkolb from Disney's Imagineering team to talk about engineering and creative applications. The students were asked to set up circuits and create working electrical systems to turn on a motor and LED light simultaneously. We are excited to continue working with local high school students through the upcoming summer to prepare for the students' final project.

A few weeks back, ACE Mentoring had its first Trades Day of the year. Students got their hands dirty and spent time exploring some of the different trades that make up a typical construction site - everything from laying bricks to managing the BIM model in the construction office. Trades Day took place at USC's new village that remains under construction. Rockefeller is partnering with a local high school, Del Amo Construction, and John Labib & Associates to engage, excite, and enlighten students about Architecture, Construction, and Engineering.
