BECOMING SKILLED THROUGH CREATION,
INNOVATION AND DETERMINATION
This workshop is unique in school experience, a space in which children don the mantle of engineer and designer. Becoming skilled with the tools, concepts, and habits of mind of the design process, children investigate the intersection of systems (mechanical and architectural), materials science, and aesthetics to bring ideas to life. Documenting the process, from initial sketches and journal notes to final drawings and written reflections, children develop portfolios that illustrate their thinking, making learning public.
