The Waldorf School of Cape Cod just announced a new summer program for students in grades 5 and up who want to learn about the social impact of architectural design. The program will be held at the Waldorf School in Cotuit starting on June 12th.

In this introduction to Architecture course students will design their own tiny home. Instructor, Jenny Drain, will introduce architecture concepts including space planning, architectural styles, building materials, and structural components. Students will use hand drawing to design their own tiny home.

The second week of the course introduces how design is impacted by social issues. When there are earthquakes, hurricanes and social conflicts, housing must respond to these issues. Each student will design a small home to respond to these social issues.

The program will be offered in two week sessions on June 12th -23rd or July 10th - 21st. Call the Waldorf School of Cape Cod to enroll in the program at 508-420-1005 or visit the school’s website to sign up online at www.waldorfcapecod.org/summer-program
