AIAS Bowling Fundraiser

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.

Triangle Brick Factory Visit

Our ARC 211 Class had the wonderful opportunity to tour the Triangle Brick Factory ( 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.

CANstruction! Urgent!!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a great week. I know it’s last minute, but for those who are participating in CANstruction, we are going to get together to talk about it tomorrow between 5:00-5:30pm in ETB 219 (I’m pretty sure it’s open). Mr. Jefferson has some things he would like to share with us.

I am really looking forward to hearing about your can mini-builds over the weekend and hopefully seeing some preliminary sketches (remember that deadline we have on Friday? EEEEK!) If you can’t make it to the meeting tomorrow but you have something you’d like to share, please send it over to me and I will be happy to present it for you.

Don’t forget WEDNESDAY is our full club meeting! See you there.
