Middle schoolers turn ideas into models using basic principles of landscape architecture and design, and Google SketchUp. Engineering and technology are the stars of this unit, as students are challenged to problem solve and think outside of the box. Students also participate in a field trip to University of Oregon’s Landscape Architecture Department to observe models and diagrams created by college students.
This Middle School focused unit will be available for download in the near future. Please contact us if you would like information before then.
