Amy Fahnoe and Barbara Mourad’s third-grade class at Equestrian Trails Elementary School recently had Derek Carroll, a volunteer parent from VDCO Tech, in class to demonstrate a virtual architectural design STEM activity where the students were tasked to design the layout of a condo unit given a specific budget. They were grouped in fours, two of which were architects and two of which were interior designers. The students learned how to collaborate as a team to design with a budget in mind, all while having fun.
