BRCC Hosts Hammer House Build Experience

Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) and the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) recently hosted a Hammer House Build Experience for local educators, construction leaders, and high school students from Istrouma High School. The students built a small house in two hours using applied math and real construction materials. The house was large enough for all 25 students to gather in. Perry Wilson–a master carpenter and entrepreneur who claims construction changed his life–introduced his math education system, HammerMath, to the students. He partnered with the NCCER to bring HammerMath to all students and help them understand how to apply math to their lives.
