Last week, a group of fourth and fifth graders from Echo Park Elementary School and Oak Ridge Elementary School stopped by the Alchemy office to ask a real architect some questions. After spending time studying architecture in class, the students ventured into the real architecture office as part of their "Architectural Tour of the Twin Cities." The field trip started at Alchemy where Geoff explained the role of an architect as well as answered student questions.
After Alchemy, the class had a full day of stops including the Ramsey County Courthouse, the Cathedral of St. Thomas the Apostle, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the observation deck of the Foshay Tower, and lastly the Guthrie Theater.
We enjoyed having the students stop by and hope they had a great time the rest of their field trip.
