The Under Construction exhibit, located at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, was recently dismantled in preparation for a new exhibit to take its place. As the exhibit’s title sponsor and the region’s unified coalition for the construction industry, WVCA was proud to partner with the museum to bring unique, hands-on educational opportunities to its visitors.
The exhibit welcomed children of all ages to explore drawing, driving, lifting, welding and assembling much like the Wabash Valley’s electricians, operators, plumbers, architects, bricklayers and the many tradespeople who make up our region.
Member company Earl C. Rodgers had their team members there to help dismantle it, along with the Terre Haute Children’s Museum staff and volunteers. Take a look at the dismantling process in this video
