Design is a Catalyst for Learning! When children are engaged in the process of designing, they are learning to identify needs, frame problems, work collaboratively, explore and appreciate the contexts within which a solution must work, weigh alternatives, and communicate their ideas verbally, graphically, and in three dimensions. This program is introducing the discipline of architecture to kids, to nurture their talents, interests, & encourage interdisciplinary pollination of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) topics.
In this course, children will design and build a three dimensional buildings limited only by their imagination. They’ll learn how architects combine functional needs for a building with designs that excite our imaginations. They will use wide range of materials (including clay, wood blocks, cardboards, polystyrene, foam boards) to turn their imagination into reality.
