After-School Programs

Virtual Class - Digital Design: Rooftop Dwelling (Grades 6-8) Tuesdays and Thursdays, April 21 - May 14, 3:00 - 5:00 PM

This four-week After-School program introduces students to SketchUp, a fun and free 3D computer modeling program. With space at a premium in cities, it is no wonder that people have taken to creating rooftop escapes from city life. From gardens, to cottages, to lighthouses, it is amazing what you can find by looking up! In this program, students will create a digital model of their own sustainable rooftop oasis complete with landscaping. Students will learn the basics of SketchUp and create a digital model and animated walk-through of their finished project.
