earlier today, i was in the woodshop at school cutting some shelves out of melamine. yes, it's one part in the never-ending moving story (that flying dog from neverending story totally creeps me out, by the way). anyway, there was a box marked as "scrap--donations for A+D museum's ARkidTECTURE program." i had no idea what it was, but i tossed some of my scrap pieces in since it sounded better than sending it to the landfill.
i just looked it up, and it sounds awesome. i really wish something like this had been available when i was a kid. if you have or know a kid ages 8-12 that is interested in industrial design, architecture, and/or landscape architecture, you want to expose to these fields, or you just wanna keep occupied for a few saturdays this summer, ch-ch-ch-check it out. it's FREE!
oh, and the a+d museum's website is kinda eh right now, so go to their facebook fan page for more info. they've had some good exhibits, and i hope to volunteer at some of their events soon.
