  • Virtual Reality Tour
    Students from Jon Dickover's construction classes were given the opportunity to take part in a virtual reality tour of the new high school.  The tour was put on by Skanska, the general contractor for the project.  Students were able to see site plan drawings and "walk" the building, as well as experience first hand how technology is enhancing innovation in the construction field.
