Capital project construction gives students unique learning experience

Hands-on learning is critical for many students. Learning skills and seeing how they translate into real-world applications, can be even better. With the capital project construction happening on campus, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School teacher Shelly Bevan’s is taking advantage of the unique learning opportunity.

Bevan’s Construction Systems class took a walk down the hall and into the courtyard to get an up-close look at the work being done to build the new gymnasium. Safely behind the fencing around the construction, on-site team members from Turner Construction walked students through the construction process and materials being used to build the gym.
