ACE Greater NY teams are made up of 15-30 students from different high schools throughout NYC, and 7-10 mentors representing the design and build industry. Mentors guide students through the fundamentals of architecture, engineering, and construction management, while also developing a pseudo-design project that the students present to family and peers at the end of the season. ACE Greater NY teams meet after school at industry firms for at least 15 sessions.
