Ask the Builders!

 In Events

Attention, parents! Here’s a fun activity for the whole family as we are spending more time at home, social distancing.

Kids, have you ever driven by a construction site and wondered about what’s going on inside those fences? Are you curious about those tall tower cranes and who operates them? Interested in how walls are built? Do you wonder about all the things a carpenter builds in a day? Send us your questions!

We’ll answer as many questions as we can through videos posted here on The Builder’s Blog and our social media channels. Every other Friday, we’ll create a new video answering your questions.

Please fill out the form below to ask a question. Even better, upload a video of your child’s question for us to include in our video. Children up to age 12 can participate, so please share and spread the word!

  • Your email will only be used to contact you with questions about your submission.
  • Last name will not be used if requested
  • If your school district is a CG Schmidt project, please feel free to ask questions about it!
