Black Creativity career bowls are fun and educational games designed to introduce students in grades 6-12 to the variety of occupations available to them. This year, Foster Green Morgan LLCs Jim Foster, president and CEO; Wayne Morgan, vice president of operations and Anita Green, vice president of marketing present Educational GameWorks A Creative Way to Learn. Combining aspects of Jeopardy and Who Wants to be a Millionaire, students learn about engineering fields, while having a great time competing for cash prizes for their schools by answering questions about responsibility, growth, foundation skills, workplace competencies and various occupations. Professionals are on hand to answer questions and provide information. Please note: Career bowl participants have been selected for the 2005 program. This program is not open to the public, only to school groups that make reservations in advance. Schools that would like to compete in future career bowls should call Octavia Hooks at (773) 684-9844, Ext. 2333.
