Pro D Day Camp - "Starchitecture - Design A Sculptural Building"

The GNS Design Team is proud to offer an exclusive design-focused learning opportunity for students aged eight to 12 on the February 17 ProD Day.
Design is at the heart of innovation. As we look to strengthen and extend our student innovation and learning opportunities beyond the walls of GNS, we are pleased to offer this creative, educational, and fun learning opportunity with an industry-recognized professional designer, Krystle Schofield, a former designer with the global Herman Miller brand.
Krystle now runs the Vancouver Island branch of Petit Architect, an organization that works to empower children to be responsible, eco-conscious citizens with hands-on design workshops, camps, and classes.
This day long-session will offer students a chance to delve deeper into the design cycle while creating real products they can take home at the end of the day.

Time: 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In this camp, we will explore the form, function, and impact of architecture that makes us go “wow”! We will study some of the famous landmark buildings around the world, and learn about the building process, innovative material use, and the impact on the urban landscape.
