Building Education Towers

Students in Mrs. Gartley's Personal Finance & Careers course were given the task of building the tallest education tower within the confines of a limitation. Some groups could not speak, or had keep one hand behind there back to simulate real-life limitations associated with a lack of human capital (skills, knowledge and experiences) acquired through formal and informal education. It became clear they already are investing in the base of this structure while in high school. While  they may be earning invisible money today, with more time and investment after high school it will translate to increased opportunities and income in adult life. [Submitted by Mrs. Gartley]
