the national building museum keeps coming up with creative classes.
we went for their homeschool day in june.
we ended up staying for both the morning and afternoon sessions
so everyone could take a class.
radianceGirl took Water Works,
mercyGirl took Symbolic Architecture,
signGirl took Architecture 101, and
prayerGirl took Designing on the Wild Side.
the only girl who didn’t bring something home was radiance girl
who worked in teams to build a water sculpture;
and for that i’m grateful.
as usual we spent a good amount of time in Play, Work, Build,
but there were also some new, captivating exhibitions.
i particularly enjoyed walking around the second level,
viewing all the unique design elements
in the 60 3-D models suspended from the ceiling in the Hot to Cold exhibit.
the designing for disaster exhibition was also engaging,
examining natural disasters and our approach to building safer communities.
the girls especially like the interactive wind tunnel.
we’re all looking forward to new classes and exhibitions in the fall.
