April 14th – 16th, AIAS with the help of Buffaloe Lanes South, will be hosting a bowling fundraiser for the club. The officers have these flyers below available.
Here’s how it works: Grab a flyer from an officer. Present the flyer to the bowling alley when you are paying for your afternoon/evening of fun and the Wake Tech AIAS Club will receive 50% of the profit back from your receipt. So tell your friends and family and come out and have some fun this weekend. All are welcome to come out. We hope to have a good turn out for this weekend-long event. A few members of the club will be there at 6:30p.m. on Sunday, April 16th to bowl, if anyone is interested in joining us.
Thank you to everyone who came out today, January 17th, for our first meeting of the semester. We hope that we were able to provide you with some valuable information today. Be sure to check back to the blog frequently, we will try to have more things posted this semester. Those could include interesting articles or videos pertaining to architecture. Also, if you find anything that you find interesting related to architecture please feel free to send that over to Victoria at firstname.lastname@example.org so that she can share those links with everyone else. We want to get things that you would like to see and read up on the blog.
The meeting minutes are located on the minutes page for anyone who happened to miss the meeting or couldn’t make it out today.
Let’s have a great semester!
Hope your finals and final projects are off to a great start. We are partnering up with the Student Government Association on a Food Drive. We would like everyone who is able to bring in a few cans (1-3 cans, more if you’re able) to donate on behalf of the AIAS club. We will have a box in ETB 219 for a collection zone. All of the donations will be turned in next Monday, December 19th. Again, any donations would help. I have attached an image from the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina that shows their most needed items. If you have any questions, check out their website at http://www.foodbankcenc.org/site/PageServer?pagename=FBCENCHome.
Thank you everyone!!
Our ARC 211 Class had the wonderful opportunity to tour the Triangle Brick Factory (http://www.trianglebrick.com/) which is located at 294 King Rd in Moncure, NC. The Merry Oaks Plant is located on the Wake County-Chatham County line. It was a great opportunity for these students that had the chance to visit the site to really see the process behind how a brick is actually made and all the work that goes into it.
Triangle Brick Company started in 1959. The first, original facility that is located on Highway 55 in Durham, opened in 1960. In 1973, Triangle Brick opened a second facility in Carpenter (which is located along the Durham-Wake County line).
The plant that the ARC 211 class visited opened in 1991. In 1993, a second kiln was added to the facility which doubled it’s production capacity.
Triangle Brick Company has been providing brick to residential and commercial projects in over 30 states since 1959. Can you imagine how many bricks that must be over the years? The pictures below show some of the process of how a brick is manufactured.
This is a great film that is now available on YouTube for everyone to watch. It really goes into detail about the major issue of climate change in today’s society. Leonardo DiCaprio travels across the globe to uncover the growing issue of climate change in our society.
The link to the video is below.
The link to the website of the film that provides a little more background information can also be found at the following link:
It is a great film and you should definitely check it out!
