Teens Explore Architecture
(OMAHA, NEBRASKA) – June 19, 2014 –Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an architect or engineer? On June 19, 2014 a select group of Omaha high school students will have the unique opportunity to hear from architectural and engineering professionals, and to receive hands-on experience.
The program will take place at LEO A DALY, an internationally-recognized and award-winning architecture, planning, engineering, interior design, and program management firm. They consistently rank among the top architectural and engineering firms in the world. The program, which runs through Exploring, features Ben Ries as the program coordinator for LEO A DALY. Ben has been very involved with the Exploring program, assisting students in their career pursuits.
While at LEO A DALY, students will tour the office, meeting professionals along the way. They will hear presentations from young LEO A DALY professionals about architecture and interior design, as well as electrical, mechanical, and structural engineering. The presenters also will provide career guidance for each discipline.
Interested students who would like to learn more about these career fields are invited to join a six-week program this coming fall. The program runs through Exploring, which is a career mentoring program in which high school students practice a career that they are interested in with real-world professionals for six weeks. Explorer Posts introduce students (age 14 to 20) to career fields and provide them with the resources and opportunities to develop skills in their interested fields.
