Day 2

Building a City: A study of architecture and engineering

 

Architecture encompasses all aspects of STEM – science, technology, engineering and math; with art and design thrown in – making it a STEAM career! Engineers solve problems using science and math, harnessing the forces, and materials in nature. They draw on their creative powers to come up with quicker, better, and less expensive ways to do the things that need to be done. And they find ways to make dreams a reality.

 

Challenge: To contribute to a collaborative cityscape within a given scale

 

Learning objectives:

Mathematical focus – dimensions, measurement, scale, shapes, patterning

Creative focus – planning, collaboration, problem-solving, construction

 

Our varied and innovative approach to education balances academic mastery, self and social intelligence, and creative thinking. Small classes and positive relationships lead to a sense of security and belonging which allows students to challenge themselves, take risks in their learning and to aim high.
