Summer GLOBE Institute
Forty-one teachers from our eight GLOBE schools attended a three-day Institute just before the beginning of the school year. Participants focused on Urban Infrastructure, and immersed themselves in the Salvadori pedagogy. Highlights included field trips to a major Consolidated Edison substation, arranged by ConEd engineer/Salvadori board member Len Singh, and a visit to a forensics engineering firm, Lucius Pitkin, hosted by board member Robert Vecchio. "Rarely does a teacher gets a chance to actually see how infrastructure supports daily life in New York City," said senior architect-educator Pat Shuford. "Plus they came away with rich ideas for projects and design challenges for their students."
