Students go hands-on at 2014 Construction Career Day

width=468Hundreds of students from area high schools once again converged on Seattles Magnuson Park on October 9 to get up-close and personal and even hands-on with a wide range of construction trades. Students tried their hand at activities such as laying mortar on brick survey map reading and running a crane simulator operating excavators and Bobcats assembling framed interior walls and plenty more.
