2017 Spring Program Highlights

ace annapolis 1.jpgACE Annapolis students presented their final projects on April 24th at the Anne Arundel Community College to fellow students, parents, and mentors. Teams from Arundel, Severna Park, South River and North County High Schools presented their design for the Renovation and Expansion of the ABC Chesapeake Shores Offices to a panel of experts which included the Owner’s representative.

On May 17th ACE Annapolis held their annual Reception and Networking Event at The Founders Building in Gambrills, Maryland. Guest speaker, Julie Mussog, President and CEO of the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation, spoke to attendees about the various ongoing projects in the area and the importance of the industry to the continued expansion and revitalization of the Anne Arundel County.

Our Sessions

The program is broken up into a fall and spring session which meets once per week from 2:30 to 4 pm on Tuesday or Wednesday. The students work on design projects that teach them key principles and techniques used in the design and construction industry through hands on projects and field trips to project sites. Students can also earn scholarship awards towards a degree in an ACE related field.
