Landscape Architects still needed for the Architects in Schools Program!
The Architects in Schools Program is still in need of volunteer landscape architects for the 2011-2012 school year! Architects in Schools matches professional landscape architects with 3rd through 5th grade teachers for a 6 week classroom residency at no cost to the schools. The program is based on a curriculum guide that teachers and their partner landscape architect can use to compliment existing curriculum. The curriculum uses architectural concepts to teach math, science, social studies, language arts and other disciplines and includes 'green' designing concepts. Landscape architects can receive 1 pdh for participating. Those who've participated report the experience of sharing their passion with young people to be very rewarding. For applications, questions and more information, please contact Kim Ruthardt Knowles as soon as possible at 503.317.7537 or email@example.com.
