Team 3 students from Independence, Franklin and Page High Schools in Williamson County, TN recently met with Diane Thorne of the TMA Group as well as with Paul Holzen, Emily Hunter and Jonathan Marston of the City of Franklin to present a transit plan for Williamson County that would coordinate with the proposed transit plan in Davidson County.
Team leaders for this group of students include Rachel McKinley of Johnson Johnson Crabtree and Scott Sims of Turner.
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.
Summer Butler of Layton Construction is a mentor for Team 9
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!

Team 3 visited Turner’s one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality Lab on Tuesday!! The students learned about the real world benefits of 3D modeling and how exploring the virtual environment can help owners make decisions about their projects. Outside of the tangible benefits, the students got to play in several “just for fun” virtual modules. We also had a few brave students try to walk the plank and several who tried their hand at stacking boxes.
Members of ACE Team 3 toured the new Franklin, TN campus of Columbia State Community College on Tuesday December 1, 2015.
