Event Description:
Help share some of residential construction's most in-demand job opportunities with 5th grade students from Kentwood Public Schools at one or all four of their 2018 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) events.  For many students this is the first time they'll use a tool or be introduced to YOU - a residential construction professional or hear how important it is to pay attention in math class so they'll know how to read a tape measure and make a 1/8th inch cut.  Or, that girls work in construction too!  Don't miss this opportunity to share with the next generation the awesome career pathways in our industry.
