The ACE Mentor Program of Washington has wrapped up its virtual 2020-2021 program! Due to COVID-19, all the ACE teams held virtual meetings, allowing us to accommodate students and mentors from a wide geographic base. We are hopeful that we can begin to prepare for an in-person ACE program for 2021-2022.

What is ACE?

Since 2001, the ACE Mentor Program of Washington has helped around 3,000 students learn all about the architecture, engineering, and construction professions. Are you fascinated by the art of architecture? Are you interested in how buildings withstand earthquakes? Are you intrigued by sustainable “green” building design? Are you wondering how a building can start out as an idea and become reality? Join the ACE program! Our program is free to students, thanks to donations from local firms, mentors, parents, and other supporters. To date, we have also given $864,000 in scholarships to students who pursued A/E/C fields at the university level. During the ACE Mentor Program, teams visit major construction sites, complete projects, and meet bi-monthly at mentor firm offices. Qualifying high school seniors are awarded scholarships and many students remain in touch with industry professionals for continued mentoring with career choices, college and internship applications and future employment opportunities.

Project Presentations

Each year the teams are assigned a project. Students and their mentors work diligently preparing for the Final Presentation Night where each team showcases their year-long effort. Over the years, team projects have included a new basketball arena for the Sonics, community centers in South Lake Union, a ski lodge on Steven’s Pass, a new Seattle Aquarium, high-rise towers on Lake Washington and many more.

The 2020-2021 team presentations have been pre-recorded and will be live-streamed in a virtual webcast series and uploaded to YouTube afterwards. 

Anyone wishing to view the presentations live should register at one of the links below to receive an email with the Zoom information. All presentations will take place the week of June 7, with this schedule:
