Educator Institute: Chicago Skyscrapers: Building Through the Curriculum
This workshop will explore the technology, design, and people behind the city's tall buildings and connect directly to your STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) curriculum.
Chicago has long been the home of architectural innovations—including the development of the skyscraper. Today, Chicago is home to the designers of the world's tallest buildings. We'll investigate the stories of Chicago's skyscrapers and provide classroom-ready strategies for helping your students tell their own stories about their neighborhood. Learn how architecture and design thinking practices align with Common Core standards.
Your registration includes three 9am—3pm workshops on July 12, 13 and 14, 2016. Participants will earn 15 CPDUs. Registration is limited to 30 educators of students grade 3—12.
