Dream Green Living Model Homes and Resilient Landscapes
Thursday, JAN 8, 2015, 2014 6:00 8:00pm at Greenfield Community
For: Parents, educators and youth over 8 accompanied by a parent
The challenge is to design and build imaginative and fun model homes
and landscapes, and/or a village system with features that enable
people to live a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle with low impact on the
natural environment over a long period of time. Explore
sustainability, environmental stewardship, energy concepts and
ecology with your students, and learn about climate mitigation
through landscape design while engaging in the engineering process as
you design, construct, manipulate, play with and redesign the
tabletop creations. The project can be a collective learning
experience, and is accessible to a wide range of learners.
This workshop is a cooperative hands-on adventure, and will model the
process of bringing this project to youth. Final products can be
exhibited at a free culminating event, the EnergyTeachers.org Green
Dollhouse Challenge, that will be held at the Science and
Sustainability Expo in Greenfield on March 7, 2015. Certificates of 2
hrs professional development for teachers.
Note: A great food option to consider before the event is the GCC
Dining Hall that closes at 6:00pm. We will start our workshop
promptly at 6pm.
Pre-registration required up till Jan 7: Do so by sending your name,
school/organization or parent, email, and phone, and childs age if
bringing a child to Susan Reyes sreyes7 [at] mac.com or 413-259-1658
