(York, PA) The Wagman Companies (G.A. & F.C. Wagman, Inc. & Wagman Construction, Inc.) hosted a summer version of “Take Your Child to Work Day” on August 3, 2012. 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. Wagman had 17 children participate in the program.
The program started with an interactive learning session about construction a presentation featuring history and notable construction projects and then introduced concepts related to estimating and construction. Children and parents participated in an “estimating contest” and also a construction competition in which parents and children constructed a bridge structure with toothpicks and marshmallows and were challenged to determine which structure could hold the most weight. Wagman also offered other age appropriate construction themed activities. After lunch, participants learned about construction equipment and climbed in a mobile concrete mixer and a crane. Finally, Wagman coordinated a visit from the Chilly Dilly Ice Cream Truck to provide a complementary cold treat for all attendees and for all employees at the Wagman Corporate office.
