Eco-Cities After School Program

Eco-Cities After School Program

Ready to think, solve, create, and learn? Join us this winter!

Eco-Cities is an after school program for students in grades 3-8 with a focus on design thinking, and sustainable development.

Throughout the program, students will work towards designing different components of an eco-friendly, urban neighbourhood. Each week they'll participate in hands-on challenges that will see them building their skills in creative thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. By the end of the program each challenge will come together to create a sustainable neighbourhood that can support a healthy community and planet! Your child might even bring home a few ideas for how to create positive change in your neighbourhood right away.

Key topics include:
-The design cycle and the importance of iteration
-How to design with equity and sustainability in mind
-Considering the needs of, and working with, stakeholders
-Enabling plants, animals, and humans to coexist and thrive in the same spaces
-What your design process can say about you!

Sample activities:
-Design a public transit system for a growing community
-Design and build a playground or public park with accessibility in mind
-Energy efficient building design challenge
-Create a prototypes for bridges or through ways that allow humans and animals to share roadways
