6th grade classes participate in architectural design lab
For several weeks, sixth grade students worked on an architectural design lab during Cowboy Bell. A volunteer from the Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati (AFC) worked with the students on this hands-on, project-based learning experience themed "Food for Thought". Students worked several days after school on this project that included model building and creative writing and also had a day of collaboration on a weekend.
Each class voted on a project to be included in the final competition held at the main branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County with one group winning an award for sustainability.
