On the Boards: Learning Environments in Process

Join us for a fun evening of engaging presentations by school designers and facility planners as they share projects that are currently in design. Each presenter will share a single project that is “on the boards”, in an abbreviated Pecha Kucha style slide format: 10 slides x 20 seconds per slide. Projects can be at any point in the design process, from concept to construction documents.

If you don’t know about Pecha Kucha, check it out here: www.pechakucha.com/about.

If you are a chapter member, or affiliated with a company or district that is a member of A4LE OR/SW WA Chapter, you are invited to submit your presentation. There is no cost for submission, but event sponsors are always welcome!

Deadline for Submissions is Friday, February 14 at 5:00 pm.

Mentors Needed

Would you like to share your knowledge of architecture, engineering, and construction with middle school students and helps shape their understanding of what our built environment in the future could be like? The Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter is looking for volunteers to be mentors for middle school students in the Metro area as they participate in the SchoolsNEXT Design Competition, which challenges student teams to design their “school of the future”. Mentors will work directly with students and their teachers, and can volunteer for as much time as they are able. Planning, design, construction and operations knowledge in all fields and skills are welcome. The competition starts in Fall and concludes with the Chapter competition in March. This is a great opportunity to educate our sustainability leaders of the future! Contact Robert Allen for more information.
