Summer Boost Program GIC Final Projects

In the final days of ConVal High School’s Summer Boost Program, students presented their completed projects in the Geometry in Construction (GIC) course.

Geometry in Construction was a co-taught class that allowed students to become proficient in both the geometry and construction trades competencies through hands-on activities. 

Examples included creating a set of stairs to teach rise and run, constructing balsa wood houses to learn about the importance of correctly following blueprints, ratios, and cost/waste analysis, and the construction of a full-sized dog house.
