We're teaming up with NY Counts 2020 to bring you a Census-inspired engineering challenge. Cut, fold & design your own city block while learning about the importance of the 2020 Census!


You will need 1 sheet of paper, tape & scissors. Build structures of different sizes, add decorations, windows, signs and more. Experience your neighborhood through hands-on play!


Download and build. No printer? No problem! You can follow all instructions on-screen. If you are printing, do so without scaling. Pages are formatted to 8.5" x 11" paper.


Check out our Cityscape project packet for a more Neighborhood-themed building.
