The voices of many children are ringing throughout the Arcosanti site. 55 fifth grade students and their instructors from Phoenix Country Day-school are visiting for the day. The students were split into four groups and each group cycled through many activities. Here we see the students in the Vaults with Arcosanti instructors.

The students are learning all about silt-cast method and for practice are making a silt-impressed and painted plaster tile to take home.

The morning started with a visit to the foundry to watch a bronze pour.

Other activities included a tour of the high-tunnel greenhouse, a visit to the chickens and learning about compost and wormculture.

Plus there were art/drawing classes in various locations and a class on solar science.

The school has made annual field trips to Arcosanti since 2007.
