Luis Muñoz Marín Community Schoolyard
What We’re Doing
Transforming the playground at Luis Muñoz Marín Elementary into a Community Schoolyard for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.
Create a vibrant green space that improves the daily lives of students, educators, and the surrounding community.
Through our participatory design process, students sharpen their skills in math, science, technology, and engineering by exploring ideas for their new schoolyard. They use 3D-modeling and critical thinking skills to develop their design and collaborate with other students to brainstorm ways the space can be transformed into a fun, welcoming place for all.
We collaborate with students, school officials, the district administration, and community members to ensure the new schoolyard will meet the vision for the entire neighborhood. We gather feedback and work with an architect to approve a final concept design.
We’re working to transform the schoolyard into a green space that will be well-loved and well-used. This projected timeline outlines our work at Luis Muñoz Marín Community Schoolyard.
