Mount Vernon - 'Tis the season where communities are displaying all sorts of festive cheer. One Virginia-based elementary after-school club built several wonderful gingerbread houses which are currently on display at the Mount Vernon Estate's Education Center.
An after-school club at Fort Belvoir Elementary School built several beautifully constructed gingerbread houses which are currently on display at Historic Mount Vernon: George Washington's Estate & Gardens.
Fort Belvoir Elementary is part of the Fairfax County Public School district.
The gingerbread house project was part of an after school program called GEMS (Girls Excelling in Math and Science). GEMS is part of a STEM program located (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at Fort Belvoir Elementary School called Kids' Lab.

According to a sign that is posted next to the gingerbread houses in the Education Center at Mount Vernon, the club's members are in the third and fourth grade. The sign also indicated the houses were all designed, engineered, constructed and decorated by the students.
Digital Journal saw the fantastic work of these students yesterday and took some photos:
