METAMORPHOSIS

CHILDREN’S COMMUNITY SCHOOL, FORBES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WITH JENNA ROBB

Teamwork, a safe space for exploration and risk-taking, and an understanding of the creative process are imperative to nurturing the minds and hands that will face the challenges of our future. ASAP!’s Metamorphosis Project provides the opportunity for students in grades 3-5 to apply science concepts to real-life design and engineering projects. Metamorphosis teaching artists empower students to understand their value as artists, writers, designers, scientists, and engineers. Outside of the classroom, students work with environmental scientists spending time in nature at Connecticut land preserves learning about stream ecology, endangered species, and gathering data that is brought back to their classroom for further exploration. Metamorphosis culminates in an exhibit for the schools where the designs and creations of these talented young minds are displayed for the public and school community.
