Join us at the James Rose Center for this three-part STEAM experience series for children as we explore basic concepts of architecture, nature and sustainability.
Session 1 – ‘Young Architects’
3:30pm – 4:45pm – Students take a kid-friendly tour of the property, learning about different elements of landscape architecture and design at the James Rose Center. As they go, they will collect materials to help create their own model home at the end of the tour! Grades K-4.
Session 2 – ‘Garden Artists’
3:30pm – 4:45pm – Students explore the paths and plants of the James Rose Center, learning to identify the plants by the shapes, colors and textures. Along the way they will gather materials to make their own paint brushes and end by painting their favorite plant with their self-made paint brush. Grades K-4.
Session 3 – ‘Eco-Designers’
3:30pm – 4:45pm – Students will learn about James Rose’s passion for using recycled and local materials when creating his design elements like seating and lighting. They will hear about the importance of both reusing and recycling materials by building their own decorative bird feeder using used water bottles and other plastic waste. Grades K-4.
