Team 9 consists of students from Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, TN
This semester our students are focusing on classroom sessions to further develop our design and prepare for the presentation in April. We are encouraging the students to think of motion outside of transportation and many great ideas were generated. The students energy, engagement and team work is awesome this year.
Next week we will sketch our final design and expand on particular details within the main structure. As of now, the students plan to elaborate on a rotating restaurant and incorporate a few possible designs of an aquarium, speakers (sound waves) and a potential fitness area.

Team 4 consists of students from schools in Davidson County, Tennessee
Team 4 is working on their project of a transit oriented development. They’ve evaluated the current mayor’s plan and selected a new site for development. They are currently firming up their program to really define what is included in their project. The most exciting part of this though is that this past Monday we took them all on a field trip to ride the Music City Star! We explored around the Riverfront station, then rode the train to Donelson, and explored a bit of that area so they could compare/contrast to help them determine what should be included in their project. Plus, it was just fun as none of the students had ever been on a train before.

Team 3 includes students from Williamson County Schools, including Centennial, Franklin and Page high schools.
The students are well underway in their end of year project following a semester full of rotating office visits. They have explored the roles of a design and construction team member and used exercises at each office visit to delve into the relationship between these teams. Most recently, the students gathered to celebrate a great start to the year and hit the bowling lanes for a little bonding time!
