The BSA Foundation received a grant from Hanley Wood for Learning By Design to work with families in LEGO® City, an innovative program that will engage area young people and their families in the first citywide plan in 50 years called Imagine Boston 2030. This spring, volunteers and design educators will hold workshops across Boston in which participants will go through the design process to envision their city in 2030. The workshops will begin with architects and urban planners introducing families to urban design concepts. Participants will then brainstorm their own ideas about how to create a city that is more beautiful, resilient, and equitable. Young designers will construct their ideas using LEGO® bricks, and then present their ideas to their peers and to a panel of design professionals. Workshops are scheduled in East Boston, Mattapan, Roslindale, Downtown, and Roxbury. Contact us for more information.
