The team from Kodet Architectural Group created a video of the Student Session hosted April 30th. The architect team brought 3D models, virtual reality goggles and building plans that students could use to offer suggestions and ask questions.

High School students used the opportunity to share their ideas, learn about the architecture process behind the projects and give their unique knowledge to the designs.

Our students have so much talent to share, enjoy the video!
