8 students. 1,700 small plastic pieces. And a perfectly perfect Whataburger model.
Give a group of girls one afternoon and almost 2,000 orange-and-white building blocks … and what do you get?
Concentration. Collaboration. Laughter. And a miniature orange-and-white striped Whataburger building, right down to the sign out front.
When participants at Girls Inc. in San Antonio, Texas, dug into a box containing more than 1,700 orange-and-white blocks, they jumped at the chance to build a Whataburger of their very own. And while they were building buildings, they were also building knowledge.
