Five architects and engineers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District have worked with students from the Academy for College and Career Exploration High School on a design for a sports facility. The architects and engineers met with the students on a weekly basis since the beginning of this year to walk the students through the design process from start to finish and even had a chance to create some 3-d computer models. The students presented their designs a few weeks ago to show how they reached their end product. The students were also presented with a certificate for their dedication and final design: http://bit.ly/169RDaE
