Terrace Town

Terrace Town brings architecture, design and city planning curriculum to Dane County elementary classrooms. Over several weeks, students learn how cities are planned, what makes a quality city, and how citizens can participate in the improvement of their community. Classrooms design and construct a scale model city and then install them in Monona Terrace’s Exhibition Hall for public viewing. Teachers work in partnership with volunteer “mentors”- architects, planners, and design professionals- to facilitate the students’ work.

The program will occur November 2019- January 2020.

Teachers: Registration begins in September.  Please contact Heather Sabin at hsabin@mononaterrace.com 608.261.4015 for more information about enrolling your class.

Volunteer Mentors: Now recruiting architects, planners and designers to visit classrooms.
