Nineteen students from the Engineering Academy volunteered with St. Johns Housing Partnership Saturday, September 25 to build an accessibility ramp at the home of a St. Johns County resident. The project started at 8am and was finished at 2pm. It was the 20th ramp built by the Engineering Academy over the past 11 years. Students used skills learned in their academy such as teamwork and measuring and put into practice their OSHA safety certifications. They also learned how to use power tools such as the circular saw, the reciprocating saw, the rafter square and the pneumatic framing nailer.
