Using Legos to Teach the Next Generation About Green Building
Sherwood Design Engineers’ blogging intern, Rachel Cross, shared her experience in the development and implementation of “LEGO LEED,” educating the next generation about greener buildings. What are you doing to educate architecture’s future talent and/or clients?
Every March, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign hosts an event called Engineering Open House (EOH). This event attracts over 20,000 visitors to the U of I Engineering Campus to see the 250+ exhibits put on by various student groups about engineering. A student group that I am involved with, USGBC Students, decided to use EOH as a platform to educate students and the general public about LEED and green buildings.
What is equally interesting about the write-up is the fact that Sherwood Design Engineers have a blogging intern, and they have been at it pretty regularly since 2007.
