Architecture Education is a favorite topic for AIA New Jersey. We are very excited to see it is the theme for Day 4 of National Architecture Week 2019!
Recently, AIA New Jersey member, Lauren Harris, was invited into Heather Wolkom’s Hazlet classroom at Cove Road School to present the Let’s Build a Town project, originally developed by members Ben Lee and Stacey Kliesch with a recent redesign by AIANJ K-12 Ed Co-Chair, Joseph David.
Lauren shared the architectural education experience with two STEAM classes of 5th and 6th graders. According to Ms. Wolkom, the students were thrilled with the presentation and amazed at how much math and science is involved in architecture. She was excited to see them connect their daily classroom lessons to real-life problems and career possibilities.
Lauren was invited back for more opportunity to interact with the students as they further develop their NJSBA STEAM Tank projects later this spring.
Special thanks to Lauren and the whole K-12 Ed committee for taking time away from work to visit schools across New Jersey to share the lesson of good design and plant the seeds for a robust crop of new architects tomorrow!
