ETHS plans Community Build Day


Evanston Township High School will host a Community Build Day on Saturday, Feb. 1, to show off the work of the new Geometry in Construction course.

Community members can sign up online for 90 minute time slots to volunteer for the program, which will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school's south parking lot at Lake Street and Grey Avenue.

A similar event was held last October.

Geometry in Construction is an interdisciplinary course designed to provide students with a better understanding of both geometry and construction trades by combining academic and work-world contexts — and build an affordable home in Evanston.

The class is a collaborative project of the school, the City of Evanston and Community Partners for Affordable Housing.

The course is co-taught by Matthew Kaiser, an industrial technology teacher in the Career & Technical Education (CTE) department, and Maryjoy Heineman of the Mathematics department.
