MI Students Showcase Bridge Architecture Projects

MI Students Showcase Bridge Architecture ProjectsMason Intermediate fifth grade ACT classes recently showcased their architecture bridge projects in a school-wide display for classmates and members of the community.

"The students created their own bridges to meet the needs of a 'client,'" explained fifth grade Gifted Intervention Specialist Vicki Chappell. "Students went through the design process and worked with local architects, engineers, and designers to bring their ideas to 3D life."

The fifth grade classrooms came throughout the day to view the projects and vote on the "best" ones.  The projects with the most votes go downtown to the Cincinnati Public Library for the next round of judging. Additionally, three projects are displayed at the Mason City Schools Central Office.

"We also want to give a big thanks to our volunteers and their firms!" shared fifth grade Gifted Intervention Specialist Lynne Hutchison. The local architects, engineers and designers included:
  • Stephanie Godsey, Transportation Engineer with Burgess & Niple
  • Leigha Carman, Store Designer for Kroger, and a Mason grad
  • Danielle Henry-DHDP Architects
  • Gerald Stanley- VSWC, Local architects who designed all of Mason City Schools' buildings
  • Brian Vasaris- KZF Design
  • Chad Knight-  Design Manager at CT Consultants, and an architect volunteer and Mason Intermediate parent
