Let’s Build!

This immersive learning project was a partnership between the Ball State construction management program and the Ross Center, located on the south side of Muncie. Let’s Build is part of the elementary outreach initiative developed by the Ball State construction management program in 2015. The construction industry is facing a severe workforce shortage. The goal of the program is to introduce students to the construction industry at a young age. The project team worked with elementary school students on a weekly basis at the Ross Center. Through hands-on activities, the students learned about construction, careers in construction, and construction safety. The students also assisted the project team with building an outdoor bench for the Ross Center.
