Future Architects Design their Dream Homes

Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school 5th grade Atoms participate in a hands-on, minds-on STEM activity where they design their dream home.

Monday, June 14th, 2021Our house, in the middle of street! Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship 5th grade Atoms in Mr. Giangiobbe's class put on their construction hats, grabbed some blueprints, their rulers, straight edges, compasses and calculators for their hands-on, minds-on activity of designing their dream house!

From mansions, to houses, to duplexes and everything in between, these future architects used their mathematical skills of area, perimeter, and spatial graphing and built out and designed their dream home. No home is ever complete without figuring out the budget and how much you would like to spend when it comes to fixing up a home or even designing your own home. The Atoms put their financial skills to work, as well, when they were drawing and designing their homes.

This awesome STEM assignment is one the students will remember for always!
