Roseville Area High School students who participate in the school’s ACE Club — that stands for architecture, construction and engineering — recently presented their final project along with eight other high schools at the University of Minnesota. Though the team did not win, the experience of planning and designing the project in collaboration with the industry mentors was invaluable. In addition, two students — Emma Bontrager and MuahMong Vang — each won $1,000 scholarships.

According to Jacob Krautkremer, an industrial technology teacher at RAHS who serves as the club’s advisor, students in the ACE Club work closely with their mentors on projects that provide hands-on experience in solving the types of design, engineering and construction challenges industry professionals confront every day. “The students did an amazing job presenting what they learned during the entire process of planning and designing their project,” said Krautkremer. “They did a great job representing Roseville Area High School.”

Todd Olson, the district’s college and career readiness administrator, says Roseville Area Schools has recently been accepted to be a partner district by the ACE Mentor Program of Minnesota, which is an honor, since there are only 14 chapters in the state of Minnesota.
