Turner High School students in the Building Trades program built a playhouse that was featured at the Kansas City Home Show at Bartle Hall March 28-30, organized by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City.

The Turner School District, located in Kansas City, Kan., has a goal of equipping students to go directly into a trade, a trade school, or on to college.

The philosophy of the program is to use residential construction to reinforce many other academic disciplines while building critical thinking skills, team building and work ethic.

Throughout the two-year construction of their home, students take part in all trades. Students take field trips, talk to construction workers and get dirty all while getting an exposure to residential construction.

When they leave the program, each student will have an understanding of how a house is built and will have also explored the many career opportunities available to them.
