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 course introduces 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 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 a wide range of materials (including clay, wood blocks, cardboards, polystyrene, foam boards) to turn their imagination into reality.
