NAWIC Los Angeles Chapter #42 hosted its National Education Foundation (NEF) Block Kids Competition at Open Charter Magnet School to engage 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students in construction and construction-related careers. Students were asked to design, build and explain a construction project that they created out of leggos, string, foil, and a rock.
NAWIC-LA Block Kids gives us an opportunity to share information about construction and construction-related careers to middle school students. It is essential to build the pipeline for careers in construction and to do so we found the most effective way is to start young.
We are grateful to our volunteers, judges and generous sponsors.
