Jon to Mentor Middle School Group for CEFPI Competition
For the next two months, Jon will be teaching and mentoring a group of 6th - 8th grade TAG students at Roseway Heights Elementary school in NE Portland.
The class will provide an opportunity for students to participate in a "Design a School of the Future" competition sponsored by the Council of Educational Facilities Planners. (CEFPI)
"The annual competition, open to middle school students, challenges student teams to design their schools to enhance learning, conserve resources, be environmentally responsive and engage the surrounding community. The multi-disciplinary solution requires students to follow a planning process from the concept phase to completion of the project, with thorough documentation. The students will present their project to a jury for review".
Professionals from the design, engineering, landscape architecture, facilities planning, and local government will be invited to lecture and participate in school juries of the students work.
Based on the outcome of those juries, one or two student groups from Roseway Heights will be selected to present their final project at the chapter level on March 14th, 2014.
From there, select teams will be invited to present their projects at the regional and possibly the international level at the CEFPI conference in October 2014 in Portland, OR.
Jon is excited to volunteer and share his knowledge and passion for design, architecture and education. We will keep you posted as the year moves forward.
