The 19 designs submitted from ACAD students are on private display for the next two weeks at Hillhurst School There, Hillhurst elementary students will have the opportunity to engage with the designs.
Each teacher may adapt the drinking fountain design project in age and curriculum appropriate ways. There are many aspects of the project so teachers can modify the approach.
Depending on the learning module under study, students can share their stories and ideas about water, Riley Park, the world of design, environment and urban nature, the civic commons, how public services work and collaborative processes, to name only a few possible topics to discuss.
In two weeks, the exhibit moves to public display at Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association.
Kerry and the volunteer organizing committee of Water for Riley hope many will come to view the wonderful designs.
