Denver, Colorado

Frances Jacobs School ECE-5 is a Denver Public School located in the Green Valley Ranch neighborhood. The design of the Learning Landscape playfully interprets the theme of energy, providing opportunities to learn about kinetic energy, wind, weather, and nature. 

Multiple forms of energy, including wind, corn, geothermal, petroleum, sun, nuclear, coal. and hydro power are expressed in graphic images and inspirational quotes etched into the outdoor amphitheater follow the theme. 

Energy-themed learning amenities dominate the space. In addition to a sundial and windmill, the hopscotch, foursquare, and basketball courts depict centrifugal force.
