July 21st 2016 marked the half-way point for DDC’s Summer High School Interns. The students gathered for a working lunch to discuss their experiences within their respective units. Interns participated in an exercise to share their observations and comment on the many new skills they have learned. They noted they now had OHSA-10 certification, as well as Microsoft Excel, Sketchup and Revit training. For some, the experience provided an opportunity to utilize these computer programs outside of a school setting. The students were eager to engage with the many different professionals they met during their time at DDC.

DDC Commissioner Peña-Mora stated, “It is experiences such as the ones you are having at DDC this summer, which include both practical learning and networking with seasoned professionals that will serve you well in the future as you navigate the world of the built environment. Some of the friendships and professional relationships you make this summer will be with you for the rest of your careers.”
