Animal Architects: Using Nature’s Builders to Teach STEAM

April 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Fri, April 26, 2019, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

CoLab 18 at Nova Place
100 South Commons
Pittsburgh, PA 15212

What is an architect and how can animals be architects without using pencils, computers and blueprints? This hands on workshop will explore how cross curricular topics such as ecology and environmental science can be used to teach math and engineering. We will discover how the expertise of animal architects such as spiders, beavers and birds can be utilized in an early childhood classroom to teach STEAM concepts. This workshop will be presented by Julie Travaglini from Allegheny Land Trust. We look forward to seeing you there!
