About the House
Career and technical education students
in the Academy of Construction and Design at Cardozo Education Campus are learning about carpentry, electrical, HVAC
and other technical specialties on the construction site of
a 2,000 square-foot, single-family house in Northwest Washington.
Students are taking their math, carpentry,
mechanical drawing, blueprint reading and practical science
studies from the classroom to the real-life construction site.
Licensed instructors and professional builders
on loan from leading construction firms and contractors mentor
students on the construction site.
