The sky is the limit in Expert Architects! In this math, writing and presentation class, our students find out on the first day of class that they are the heads of the city's newest architectural firm. They are commissioned with building the tallest building in a nearby city and must plan their design. Students learn a kid-friendly history of skyscrapers and create a blueprint of their own stylized tall building. They then must weigh other considerations including environmental effects, traffic and surrounding buildings using Google Earth to find the perfect location for their project. Once their blueprint is finished, our expert architects create a three-dimensional model of the structure and deliver a presentation to their "clients" highlighting all aspects of their creation. See a full curriculum preview:     Instructor will meet the children after school and walk safely to the Brick Building on school campus.

As students work to create their Lego City, they focus particularly on the role of cars in the modern urban environment. Students learn about the history of automobiles as they create both Lego buildings and the Lego cars that will fill the city streets. They learn about the automobile's relationship to the environment and consider electric cars, car pool lanes and speed limits as they debate car-related laws. Students must decide on the types of roads and highways they will create for their city balancing efficiency, traffic, bikes and pedestrians. They will learn about bridges, ferries and tunnels as they debate the best way to span the river that divides two sections of their city. A fun and engaging way to learn about technology, the environment and politics!
