The Oak Park Education Foundation is proud to be the August recipient of a $10,000 grant to expand Architecture Adventure into all ten Oak Park public schools. With the help of the Community Bank of Oak Park River Forest, we are inspiring the next generation of architects, citizens, designers and engineers.
Community Bank received 87 grant applications for the ten $10,000 grants.
The Oak Park Education Foundation will use its grant to conduct staff development for art teachers in architecture, introduce architecture curriculum to students, and purchase permanent and consumable materials for architecture projects in all ten schools. We will also be bringing architects into the schools, taking field trips to Oak Park and Chicago sites, and running an after-school club and summer camp in 2008!
