Innovative Workshop participates with AIA Denver in Career Days
Tiffany Beffel, Managing Partner of Innovative Workshop Consulting, LLC, joined AIA Denver in participating in the Colorado Construction Career Days event on October 4, 2011. Colorado Construction Career Days is an industry sponsored event allowing high school students in grades 10 through 12 to explore and learn of the various areas of construction including building, highway, engineering, and architecture. Working with fellow AIA members and AIA Denver, we conducted a brief presentation of the field of architecture including education, experience, and expected financial compensation of becoming an architect. To engage students in understanding how to integrate a passion for art and design along with structural components, we worked with students to create marshmallow and toothpick structures. Students were given the freedom of creation as long as the structure was three levels high. The event was very successful and Tiffany Beffel enjoyed being part of it while supporting the local community.
