After-School Programs

Green Architecture Fun! (Grades 3-5) Wednesdays, January 8 – March 18, 2020

In this 10-session after-school program, students will learn all about the power of green design and why it matters. We’ll investigate renewable energy sources, think up ways to be kind to the planet through our daily choices and actions, and explore how best to use green design strategies in our very own building designs! Then, we’ll draw-up our ideas and make them come to life. By the end of the program, each student will have built, by hand, a model of their very own green building.

This program meets on Wednesdays from 3:30pm – 5:00pm.

Please note: the program will not meet on February 19
