Virtual Shop Class

Date/Time

June 2, 2020 to June 23, 2020
12:00 PM until 12:30 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday.

Description

Today only 14% of secondary schools across the country offer shop class, leaving a massive gap in the number of young people exposed to introductory building skills such as carpentry, plumbing, and basic home repair. This lack of exposure has left today’s youth lacking basic do-it-yourself (DIY) skills such as how to use a hammer, screwdriver, or saw. Most don’t know the difference between a flat head or Phillip’s head screwdriver. It’s time to do something about that and teach them!

Generation T, in conjunction with Lowe’s Home Improvement and She Built This City, is proud to present Virtual Shop Class. This series of free live webinars is geared towards kids and parents aimed at helping to introduce the skilled trades to younger generations. Hosted by Demi Clark from She Built This City, kids (and parents, too) can learn the basics of building and work on fun projects using materials found around the house.
