What is the Young Apprentice Construction Club

The Young Apprentice Construction Club is a Fulton County school-sponsored program that gives elementary school students the opportunity to learn some of the basic fundamentals of Construction Technology. The emphasis is on woodworking.

What will we do?

  • Learn the importance of safety
  • Develop precise measurement skills
  • Develop hand and power tool skills
  • Make two take-home project(s): Perfect Toolbox and Perfect Bluebird House

Students will learn to use various hand and power tools such as: screwdrivers, speed squares, corded drills, a benchtop drill press, a compound power miter saw, and even jigs. Additionally, they will learn how to properly read and use a tape measure. Students will be taught the purpose, proper use, and care of each tool through the hands-on exercises necessary to complete their projects.

Last, but not least, all students will: build their very own “Perfect Toolbox” and “Perfect Bluebird House” while working together in teams of two, thus sharing their tools; and, they will double-check each other’s measurements to assure quality work is guaranteed. A huge emphasis built into our program addresses character and responsibility which is a consistent theme in nearly every aspect of what we do in our time together.
