Mercersburg Under Construction

Applicant’s Name: Cynthia Salawage
Project Title: Mercersburg Under Construction
Budget Request: $1,602

This year is a time of transformation for Mercersburg Elementary, and its K-5 students are in a unique position to observe, record and learn from the experience. The renovation provides the perfect opportunity for us to teach children about architecture and engineering. This project has been started by a grant for five iPad 2s and teaching materials. I am requesting two additional iPad 2s which will allow whole classrooms to be able to work on projects together. All Mercersburg students (approximately 310) will be introduced to the foundations of architecture and engineering. Classroom teachers will use Architecture: It’s Elementary and BrickLab Survey to teach students about the renovations, architecture and engineering that is occurring around them everyday.
