As part of our Woodwork module during Transition Year, students are giving the chance to get a small experience in the architecture section. They are given the task to design something for their local town, to help improve the community.

When the students begin the task, they are given a small blue book, to keep details and sketches of their project.

This is a great activity as it helps the students to learn about a certain topic, which usually isn’t tought to exam year students and also helps solve problems and interact with the community outside the school.

The project helps your teamwork skills, innovation and design skills whilst also allowing students to use their drawing, photography, writing and designing skills.

This project is by the Irish Architecture Foundation.
