Student Day Workshops are hands-on workshops for K-12 school groups interested in enriching their classroom learning through the disciplines of architecture, engineering, urban planning, and design.
Through these interactive workshops led by Center for Architecture Design Educators, students explore the program topic through inquiry-based investigations of architectural examples, drawing, movement, and design activities. Students then apply what they have learned to create their own designs on the program theme. Programs may be booked at the Center for Architecture or as virtual sessions. See below for more information.
All programs include a Resource Packet with additional information, extension activities, and links to curriculum standards in Math, Science, ELA, Social Studies, and Visual Arts.
Programs are offered during the school year Monday – Friday. Classes may not be combined in a single Student Day workshop. If you are booking for more than one class, please list each class separately.
