Several of Modern’s staffers joined local construction companies this week in an event hosted by the National Association of Women in Construction‘s Salem chapter. NAWIC’s Construction Careers Day gives students exposure to the variety of careers available in the construction and trades industries. Students run large equipment, ask tradespeople their questions and experience first-hand many of the interactive exhibits, including building brick walls and creating basic electrical circuits.
Modern’s staff loved playing Jenga with students while discussing what gives a construction career a solid base. Students asked insightful questions about how off-site construction differs from site-built construction processes. We believe strongly in investing in the next generation of tradesmen & women!
