Boulder Civic Area Project Findings
Boulder Journey School
During fall 2012, teachers worked with families and children to gather ideas for improving the Boulder Civic Area. In preparation for the December 5 Civic Area Beta Test, observations and documentation of the children's experiences were analyzed. Teachers and families designated 5 themes within the children's ideas and recommendations. We view this culmination as a beginning rather than an end, and plan to work with the children and families in 2013 to develop the gathered ideas. We view this as an important opportunity to not only engage the children in Civic Planning, but as an opportunity to study science, technology, mathematics, and engineering within a context of creativity and imagination.
