City Streets Investigators Program
Safe Routes to School Partnership is offering a free program! They will provide the materials/snacks and one facilitator! All that is needed is a classroom (and potentially one other facilitator depending on the number of kids).
City Streets Investigators (CSI) includes two 1.5 hour sessions (intended for 3rd-5th graders, class size of 20-30 students) and has a goal for students to learn about street safety with an emphasis on the need/possibility to redesign streets. The learning goals are meant to introduce ideas of urban design, engineering, advocacy, and critical thinking. The program includes a session where all the students go outside and investigate the streets around their school. The program ends with an advocacy action like writing a letter to their supervisor, providing feedback to the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), or creating signs to have in their classrooms/school about safe streets.
In addition, we piloted CSI in Chinatown in 2015.
