Online learning adaptions
Due to COVID and public health guidance, ACE of Greater Boston is running our signature after-school program online this year, with students attending one hour per week:
Monday 5:00-6:00 (NU) – started Oct 19
Tuesday 4:00-5:00 (WIT) – started Oct 20
Tuesday 5:00-6:00 (RCC) – started Oct 20
Wednesday 4:00-5:00 (BSA) – started Oct 21
Wednesday 5:00-6:00 (SMMA) – started Oct 21
We are also sponsoring a series of optional career panels on some Thursdays in collaboration with the National Organization of Minority Architects.
ACE spent the summer adapting our hands-on, project-based learning model for online delivery. A great deal of care and planning went into how to sustain our strong mentoring relationships in a virtual setting. We have put hours of work into creating and mailing activity kits to students to ensure that every student has what they need to participate. We are excited to see students digging in and participating actively in our shared project of designing a home.
