VLK Architects and Weatherford College team up for STEMania
FT. WORTH, Texas ' On Oct. 30th, VLK Architects joined forces with Weatherford College Wise County for a fun day of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. VLK provided a template for more than 100 fourth graders to design their own city using different shapes, textures and colors while working side by side with their peers.
'Children were excited to use their hands to create buildings by coloring, folding and stacking shapes,' said Angela Mitchell, VLK Architects. 'It was interesting to see the groups use critical thinking skills to make design decisions such as building higher as the footprint of the city was reduced.'
STEMania is a day-long event that hosted more than 700 fourth graders and 300 volunteers. This event encourages children to consider science, technology, engineering and mathematics as a career path. With 30 years of experience designing and building educational facilities that support educational excellence, VLK is proud to be a part of an event that encourages teaching this curriculum using creative methods.
