  class   grade   time   teacher   description
   Architecture4Kids 1      1-3    9:50 - 10:35    Greg Gurevich      Spring\'20

This STEM-oriented class introduces students to the basics of architecture and engineering. We will integrate art, math, science, and history to create both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional solutions to various problems. Students will learn basic architectural drafting and model-making. Some materials that will be used include wood, legos, modeling clay, string, craft sticks, among others. Some examples of projects include a tee-pee, pyramid, truss bridge, and designing your own imaginary house. 
   Architecture4Kids 2      3-6    11:30- 12:15    Greg Gurevich      Spring\'20

This STEM-oriented class is intended to challenge the students\' imagination while applying a logical thought process to their creativity through hands-on projects. The emphasis will be on 3-dimensional thinking to create solutions to various problems. Students will continue to learn architectural drafting and model-making using various materials such as wood, foam core, cardboard, and strings, among others. Students will also learn about some famous architects and projects and why they are significant. Some of projects we intend to do in class include building a basic structural frame of a building, an origami building, and a suspension bridge. 
   Architecture4Kids 3      7-8    10:40 -- 11:25    Greg Gurevich      Spring\'20

This STEM-oriented class aims to help students understand the different elements involved in designing and constructing our \"built environment\". We will continue learning about architects who have played an important role in the development of architecture and explore significant buildings. Students will apply basic calculations to design, draft and construct their projects and learn to present them to the class. There will be an emphasis on 3-dimensional thinking, design, scale, context, and building using various materials. Examples of projects include designing the building frame, facade, calculating the area and zoning of a building.
