Over the next few weeks, 9th grade students will work in project teams to propose sites and ideas for the sustainable urban regeneration of Lausanne in preparation for the games. In doing so, students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and understanding of urban regeneration and sustainable development in a real context. In Art class, students will apply artistic competencies while developing the creative elements of their work.
To launch this exciting new project, all 9th grade students and their class teachers visited the Olympic Museum to look for ideas and inspiration relating to urban regeneration for Olympic events. Using their iPads, students took pictures of examples and created a collage of ideas to help them guide the rest of their project work. We will now work on the project proposal and present our work to the school community at the end of May. Watch this space!
