 SWC Building Trades
We are building a House!

 The Sisseton Wahpeton College Building Trades Program has started construction on a three-bedroom house as part of their 2018 – 2019 curriculum. This project is in conjunction with the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate Housing Authority (SWHA). The SWHA provides all building materials and will be constructed to SWHA specifications and standards. This joint venture will provide SWC building trades students invaluable hands-on start-to-finish carpentry, plumbing and electrical experience. The house is being constructed in the SWC Vocational Ed building and upon completion will be moved to the permanent residential site.  

SWC Carpentry Instructor Jason Hannasch supervises the project; Jason is an experienced certified carpenter. In just a few short weeks Jason and his students have made great progress on this house, this venture provides further proof that the SWC building Trades program is second to none.

The Polaris Project

The 2018 Polaris project participants are a diverse group of minds unified on the tundra of Alaska to investigate questions of climate change. The camp’s well-oiled machine is driven by new hypotheses and intense data collection. The researchers go to great lengths in the name of science, disregarding the discomfort of the elements, to gather samples and extract data from the environment. The climate isn’t always trying; some days the sunlight illuminates the beautiful landscape. The various shades of blue, green, brown, and white blend together stretching across the horizon, surrounding you as far as the eye can see. When the breeze picks up, it can be enough to keep the mosquitos at bay, but at any lull, the relentless festering swarm of hungry winged pests envelop you and test the limits of a bug jacket. Nevertheless, the bipedal company keeps alive the aspiration of scientific discovery. The goal is not to outdo one another, but to correlate and contribute to the bank of knowledge. For us the changes in the tundra are limited to the fickle weather’s passing moisture, though the accounts and stories from the local villages would indicate significant longer-term changes in the climate and the effects on their subsistence living.
