Construction Begins on Hands-on House Exhibit!

Kristi Pronovost The Merit Shop Spokesman Blog

The Hands-on Contruction Co. Exhibit, sponsored by ABC Keystone in partnership with the Hands-on House of Lancaster, is starting to take shape! This construction-themed exhibit is geared towards elementary-school ages and will teach children about different occupations and trades in the construction field, supporting construction industry workforce development.

Recently, ABC Keystone’s Carpentry I apprentices began working on the floor systems and wall framing for the core structure of the exhibit. The Carpentry I class is currently studying Floor Systems and Wall Framing in their program curriculum, and participating in the build of this project provided them with hands-on training to support their learning.

There are several ways that you as members of ABC Keystone can be a part of this adventure. Please visit www.handsonhouse.org to discover additional sponsorship opportunities. For more information on ABC Keystone’s workforce development initiatives, please contact Stephanie@abckeystone.org.
