February 11, 2015 • Written by

IMG_4015The students and instructors of RRC’s Industrial Arts Teacher Education program in cooperation with Bonnie Heath of Equality Communication Centre of Excellence (ECCOE) designed and crafted a metal and glass display that will be featured at the Raw Almond Restaurant on the Assiniboine River from Jan 22 – Feb 12, 2015.

The display-project provided an authentic learning opportunity for RA display 1students in the program. Not only where they able to put their designing, manufacturing, finishing and project management skills to the test, they also gleaned a sense of pride knowing that they were contributing to a worthwhile community activity. While at the Raw Almond Restaurant, the display will serve as a collection site for financial contributions to a 4 million dollar housing unit that will be designed to meet the needs of the Deaf-Blind individuals.
