Students will learn about architecture, engineering, and the use of tools and materials as they design and build a treehouse on the grounds of Montalvo!
The week begins with campers surveying their building site. Next, they will work as a team to collaboratively design a structure supported a tree of their choosing, and learn how to turn their design into a reality.
Over the course of the week, students will be taught to safely use hand tools. Through the building process, they will gain an understanding of universal architecture techniques used in all buildings. Their finished creation will be part of Montalvo’s 2016 Art on the Grounds exhibition.
