The sky is the limit in Expert Architects! In this math, writing and presentation class, serve as president of a new architectural firm tasked with designing and building the city’s next skyscraper. Study a kid-friendly history of skyscrapers and create a blueprint of their own stylized tall building. We will weigh other considerations including the environment, traffic and surrounding buildings using Google Earth to find the perfect location for their project. As an expert architect, create a three-dimensional model of the structure using a Minecraft-type program.
Please note: This program requires the students to create models in a Minecraft-type program called Minetest for which we send download instructions.The program is generally not compatible with Chromebooks or tablets.
Date change: Due to the change in early-release day since press time, the grades 3-5 class has been shifted to Fridays.
