Participants in the Women at Work program that the Boldt Co. held in Green Bay on Wednesday had a chance to try their hand at masonry and similar work.

Four employees from the Appleton-based contractor attended the event, which gives middle-school-aged girls a taste of what it’s like to work in the construction and technology fields. Wednesday’s event took place at the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College campus.

About 200 eighth-grade girls attended. Boldt employees ran hands-on masonry activities throughout the day.

Various sessions dealt with robotics, medical electronics, prototypes and machine tools. Participants also had a chance to learn more about the trades and technology and speak with employers.
