Volunteer Opportunities

Shakopee High School ACE Club Mentor

Shakopee High School ACE (Architecture, Construction and Engineering) Club is in need of a mentor.  ACE mentors spend 2 hours every other week from October to May engaging with students and helping to lead activities.  Sessions are geared at introducing students to the AEC industry and design and construction as well as giving them advice for college.  ACE teams are also invited to participate in The Construction Industry Round Table design challenges for the 2019 competition which involve design and construction of a playground or playscape, alleviating urban transportation congestion, or the design and construction of a community health clinic.  If you are interested in mentoring, please email outreach@ascemn.org and we will put you in touch with the Shakopee ACE club president.

Future City 2019

It’s Future City season again.  This year teams of middle school students will be designing a resilient power grid for their future city that can withstand and quickly recover from the impacts of a natural disaster. The Minnesota regional competition will be held on Sat Jan 19, 2019 at Dakota County Technical College – Rosemount.

Teams write a narrative on their city, build a scale city model, and put together a presentation with the help of their teacher and an engineer mentor. To enroll as a mentor, fill out the form at https://secure.futurecity.org/MentorBin/Mentor/Open/Enroll
