Block kids     BLOCK KIDS 2018
BLOCK KIDS was created in 1990, with the objective of engaging elementary school children in the creative thinking and reasoning skills used by people in the design and construction professions. As self-directed career thinking is starting to occur at an ever-earlier age, it also introduces them to design and construction as a possible career path.
Students in grades K-6 are given a tool kit of 100 interlocking blocks, one piece of string, one piece of aluminum foil and one piece of construction paper. They are given 45 minutes to create a "mini-model" of a "commercial" structure of their imagination. The creative process is then followed by a brief consultation with a local industry volunteer, who then discusses with the student about his/her project and the process of thinking and making. In these conversations, students are judged on their oral presentation, clarity of purpose.
