    Diman students, hiking group connect to improve Fall River's Bioreserve

    On Blossom Road, in a 19th-century timber-frame wagon shed, a half-dozen kids from Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School were busy building bridges connecting Fall River’s past to its future.  The carpentry students under instructor Jeff Cabral were building the frames for bog bridges — lengths of pressure-treated lumber that will be topped with planks and installed in the Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve to help hikers cross muddy trails.  (4/2/24)

    Rockwool demonstration enhances building science knowledge

    Thank you to Rockwool (@rockwoolna) for the building science presentation and demonstration. Expert Nick Stone did an excellent job expanding our students' knowledge of proper wall assembly design, thermal envelopes, controlling dew points within a wall assembly, and the pros and cons of various insulation products. Students were engaged and shown another career pathway in building science that now more than ever needs to be implemented to meet the energy code and create a safe, healthy living space. (3/17/22)

    Retooled: Diman adapting to challenges of learning trades remotely

    In this time of distance teaching and learning, trade shops at vocational schools face, perhaps, the greatest challenge. They, as well as many other shops offered at vocational schools, focus heavily on students working with tools and on machines. But with students, due to the COVID-19 crisis, locked out of the building and physically separated from their teachers, hands-on learning has largely been taken out of the educational equation.
