What can students do with plastic building blocks, rocks, tinfoil, and string? Whatever their imaginations will allow, all while learning about possible careers. Ramiah Henry, above, uses those materials to build a model of a house as part of the annual Block Kids Competition at Start High School. The competition was sponsored by Toledo Chapter 282 of the National Association of Women in Construction.
