A ‘Career Quest’ at North Heights

November 16, 2017 GMT

As part of North Height’s Career Quest, a Governor’s Office of Student Achievement grant funded initiative, fifth-graders are studying a different career every nine weeks. Now they are concentrating on construction.

STEAM Truck, a nonprofit organization owned by Community Builds, is a mobile maker space that travels to different schools in Georgia and works with students, teaching them how to use tools safely and solve problems. North Heights is participating in a “Big Build” which means the STEAM Truck team visits every week for five weeks and helps them build a problem-solving project the students designed.

The fifth-graders at North Heights are creating a clubhouse for their playground which will include different games and cool gadgets for all of the school’s students to enjoy.
