Educational Programming

 

Education is fundamental to the Land Art Generator. The innovative and artful applications of sustainable technologies can spark the imaginations of young people and trigger curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and math. Our programming is a great example of STEM to STEAM and project-based learning. Through the process of designing their own land art generator, middle school and high school students show applied understanding of concepts like energy conversion efficiency, capacity factor, become familiar with using kilowatt-hours. At the same time they are applying knowledge of form, shape, color, and touching on aspects of urban planning and whole systems design. These are exactly the kind of skills that researchers tell us will be important for jobs in the twenty-first century.

 

We provide workshops and programs ranging from a few hours to weeks-long Art+Energy camps and think tanks, working with people of all ages.

 

Contact us if you would like us to provide workshops for youth or adults, give a lecture on the aesthetics of renewable energy, facilitate an Art+Energy Camp, exhibition, or brainstorm a custom approach to engaging people with the design of their sustainable energy landscapes.

Solve the Climate Puzzle

The goal of this STEAM educational game is to be the first player to solve a complete six-piece puzzle. Answer renewable energy trivia questions correctly to get puzzle pieces.

Field Guide To Renewable Energy Technology

The future we would like to see is one in which we are surrounded by the most diverse ecosystem of renewable energy technologies and landscapes, each a reflection of local culture and context. This  guidebook will help you determine if that object that you find so beautiful is a semiconductor-based artificial photosynthetic cell, a piezoelectric generator, a triboelectric fabric, or a dye-sensitized solar cell. What is the future that you would like to see? Use this guide and design your own renewable energy landscapes!

Idea Generator Game

There are five dice categories. Look through example images of each category to get a clear understanding of what each one means. Use all five, or leave one or more categories to your imagination by reducing the number of dice.

By playing this game you will begin imagining renewable energy technologies in everyday places—housed in creative forms—and begin to design your own land art generators that could live in your backyard, neighborhood, or city center..

Regenerate!
Dream, Design, Deploy

Regenerate! is a collaborative resource management game in which players navigate regenerative land stewardship, sustainable development, and systems design thinking.

It's a project of the LAGI 2020 Fly Ranch design challenge. The game was developed in collaboration with Land Art Generator, Tunnel Monster Collective, and Fly Ranch Project.

Youth Prize

We held a Youth Prize to coincide with the LAGI 2016 professional competition.

In addition to a custom Youth Prize design brief, we provided a 13-step Toolkit of activities that teachers and students could use to take them through the entire design process for the development of a land art generator for a site next to the Santa Monica Pier.
