Plainwell Middle School, Plainwell, MI

For the second year in a row, SME will be participating and sponsoring the 2018 National Association of Women in Construction Chapter 302's "Block Kids" program. The event will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the Plainwell Middle School Cafeteria. SME's Myndi Bacon, PE is the Chair for the event. Myndi will coordinate volunteers and run the event on behalf of NAWIC.

The Block Kids Program is a national building competition supported by the NAWIC Education Foundation. The program is open to all students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Each student is provided with 100 Legos and the option to choose three other items to incorporate in their project, and  is given one hour to build a structure of his or her choice. Judges from the construction and engineering industry review each student’s project and discuss with them what they have constructed. Evaluations are recorded on a point system and then turned over to record keepers who tally the points. All judges are local volunteers from companies within the construction community.
