Construction Deans Nurture Big Potential in Little Hands

The “Summer Bunch” from Penn College’s Dunham Children’s Learning Center visited a School of Construction & Design Technologies lab over two days this past week for a hands-on look at the builder’s trade. In separate visits Monday and Wednesday, the boys and girls learned about the proper use of tools; built wooden toolboxes with Marc E. Bridgens, the school dean; and were interviewed and photographed by assistant dean Carol A. Lugg. (When told that their parents could use the souvenir to carry around their tools, one girl responded, “My dad carries them one by one. He doesn’t need a toolbox.”)
