Govans Elementary School Students create Feasibility Studies
Led by Nicole Price, Director of Community & Public Relations, 2nd grade Govans Elementary School students created colorful feasibility studies. First, they viewed the architect’s proposals for the revised placement of the school, a triangular outline including block diagrams for building/space adjacencies and as landscaping. Using a key to identify administrative offices, outdoor space, gym, café, library, and classrooms, students created their own feasibility study to express their visions of an ideal school layout.
Everything from parking to administrative offices were of concern to the children. One student suggested that the principal’s office was big because she’s “the big boss.” Another student envisioned a “chill room”- a place where peers could calm down before getting into trouble. Several students did not agree with the idea of an art room being close to play space. Reasonably, they felt the noise of play could distract a student who needs to concentrate on making their art. Students proudly displayed their works and explained the rationale of their studies.
