To give young children a hands-on, developmentally appropriate experience with building, and spark to early interest in the trades, Hands-on House has begun the planning and development of a new exhibit slated to open in early 2020.
Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), Keystone Chapter, a trade association for the advancement of the construction industry, will be the main sponsor for the exhibit, titled HOH Construction Co. Through this exhibit, children and their families will learn through play about the many career opportunities available in the industry and the skills that these jobs require.
HOH Construction Co. will feature a job site structure as a centerpiece and integrate four unique trade exhibits — Mason, Electrician, Plumber, Carpenter. These stations will incorporate hands-on activities directly related to each trade, creatively and safely demonstrating skills such as pulling wire, laying brick, affixing pipe or finishing trim. Children will learn math, science and problem-solving skills, and hopefully, become inspired by this work along the way.
In addition to ABC Keystone, the Building Industry Association of Lancaster County and Clark Associates Foundation have committed funding to this project as Trade Sponsors.
