Placer High School Students redesign Auburn while playing the Imagine Auburn Boardgame

High School Workshop Review - Press Release

The Imagine Auburn team held a student workshop at Placer High School Thursday, March 30th in the newly built Career Center in the Library Commons. The high schoolers helped beta test the board game created for Imagine Auburn’s Create - Workshop 2. Members of Placer High School’s Key Club and Environmental Club brought a vital perspective to envisioning a positive future for Auburn. High schoolers are often called the future of a place and an open campus has allowed the students to get to know the project area intimately.

The students were excited to learn their opinion mattered and stepped up to try out urban planning and think through how to develop Auburn into a more walkable community. With plenty of smiles and full bellies, the students created city designs and contributed criticism towards improving the board game. Their commentary will be used to better prepare the team’s materials for the next workshop on Tuesday, April 11th at the Auburn Library Community Room, when the general public is invited to play the board game.

Imagine Auburn is encouraging the local community to attend Create - Workshop 2 to help shape Auburn’s FBC and enjoy the company of others over food and refreshment. The team asks for all interested participants to RSVP, as there will be limited seats for the main activity, a board game. All generations are welcome to attend.
