Students Learn Construction Skills At Summer Camp

Local News

Kids across the Rio Grande Valley are participating in summer camps.

One school in the Harlingen Consolidated School District involves construction. The camp is being sponsored by SpawGlass and teaches students all types of skills.

Hands-on experience in everything from plumbing to masonry. The kids say it’s a blast learning the skills. Even if they choose not to enter into the construction field.

Eddie Rodriguez, Summer Project Supervisor, “One of the most important things that we hope that they get is to see that through collaboration, and team work, it takes a lot of different people to make a team, to build a project and that can apply to almost any industry.”

Madalynn Garcia, middle school student, “The career path I’m going into is not construction. I’m actually going into Marine Biology. This did help me, because one day I want to build my own sanctuary, and instead of hiring somebody I can help build it.”

This is the second year of the camp. SpawGlass sponsors classes throughout the country including Harlingen CISD.
