With classes out for the summer, construction at the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) is picking up speed. Construction crews began working in March by fencing off the east side of the building and starting demolition on several classrooms on that end. The building plans for the MACTC include many state-of-the-art features such as a multi-purpose room for career fairs and academic instruction, plus new academic and student learning areas. Other improvements include the renovation of two of the health classrooms, an expanded Criminal Justice classroom, which will include an area for students to practice hands-on skills, a small animal barn for Environmental/Veterinary Sciences students, and the addition of a culinary/food theory lab where students can practice skills demonstrated by their instructors. In addition to updating labs and classrooms for the programs already on campus, new state-of-the-art labs will be built to house the Graphic Production Technologies and Visual Communications programs. These programs are currently held at Muskegon Community College. To view the progress of the construction project at the MACTC, visit the New Construction album on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/muskegoncareertech. Construction is due to be completed by the start of the 2013/2014 school year.
