ARCHITECTURE AROUND THE WORLD
(Virtual STEAM Classroom)
In each lesson we will uncover the when and why these landmarks were built, looking at the History and Technology available at that time.
And we will question how well the building achieves its purpose, and discuss how technology available at that time changes how building were built, and explore the Architectural and Engineering concepts behind the landmark.
This learning is reinforced through a LEGO Building Challenge, where the students become the architect of their own masterpieces, and present their build to the class, aiming to develop a student’s own creative solutions and build on the students’ presentation skills.
