GE Johnson Construction Company hosted “Build Like a Girl: Careers in Construction” for Girl Scout Cadettes and Seniors in Colorado Springs on Saturday, September 28, 2019! Girls learned about construction careers; how to work as a team and use power tools to build a community library book stand; about project management and sustainability; and participated in a behind-the-scenes construction tour at the U.S. Olympic Museum. Cadettes worked on requirements for the “Woodworker” badge and Seniors worked on requirements for the “Social Innovation” badge. Girl Scouts also received a special event patch.
This event supported Girl Scouts’ STEM initiative and gave girls hands-on project experience with the opportunity to hear about a variety of careers in the construction industry. Thank you GE Johnson for once again hosting this great event!
