(York, PA) The Wagman Companies (G.A. & F.C. Wagman, Inc. & Wagman Construction, Inc.) hosted their annual summer version of “Take Your Child to Work Day” on August 8, 2014. Employees were invited to bring their children/grandchildren to work. Older children were welcome to shadow employees for the day and a program for children of all ages was planned from 10am – 1 pm.
The program included a presentation featuring history, notable construction projects and jobs in construction. Children and parents participated in an “estimating contest” followed by a construction activity in which participants “engineered and constructed” structures to house and protect an egg for the official egg drop contest. Other age appropriate construction themed activities were ongoing during the event. The “Equipment Rodeo” provided an opportunity for participants to learn about construction equipment, climb on it for photos and operate a remote controlled crane boom. To wrap up the program, the children enjoyed lunch and Rita’s Italian Ice with their parents, followed by a tour of Wagman’s headquarters.
Wagman hosted 26 parents/grandparents and 35 children, making this the largest “Take Your Child to Work Day” to date.
