OUR CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Associate Professor Kingery-Page has been part of a PGASLA outreach effort this year which culminated in the first sequence of sessions at a Kansas City, MO middle school. PGASLA is one of several partners teaming with with Kansas City's Center for Architecture & Design to offer Explore Design, an exciting design-based school program for local 6th-8th graders. This program consists of volunteers from the Allied Design Professions working with participating youth to explore a variety of design careers, experience hands-on activities, and develop critical communication skills. PGASLA members leading the effort to develop and implement curricula for landscape architecture sessions included Michael Killeen, Nina Butler (MLA '14), Miranda Schmidt, and Katie Kingery-Page. This team enjoyed launching Explore Design during April and May at Alta Vista Middle School.
