Students will time travel to ancient civilizations like Egypt, Greece, Rome, traverse through medieval times and industrial age as they learn about stable and strong structures through the ages. They will learn about sustainability in cities and discuss how water, waste, transportation, and energy/electricity worked in our past cities as well as our current cities. Then children will turn the time to the future and apply what they learned from the cities of the past and modern times to design a city of the future!
