First ACE-RI Mentor Program Summer Workshop at RISD

Seven area ACE students completed the first ACE-RI Summer Workshop at RISD on July 2. The seven-day program was led by RISD Architecture Prof. Gabriel Feld. Prof. Feld introduced the concept of how small elements can make large structures. Working in teams and with recycled cardboard boxes, the students experimented with different shapes and patterns in an effort to make as tall a tower as possible. The largest structure they fabricated with over 17 feet tall.
