What We Do
ArchForKids provides young people with engaging, hands-on learning experiences grounded in architecture, design, engineering and urban planning.
Young designers investigate, explore, measure, design, draw, calculate and construct. They design parks and dream houses, go on neighborhood architecture walks, build model skyscrapers and bridges, and so much more. Along the way, they apply academic concepts to real world situations. They also gain a deeper understanding – and appreciation – of their own communities.
Whether you are an educator looking for project-based learning aligned with your curricula or afterschool program, a museum or library staffer seeking a unique workshop, or a parent looking for exciting enrichment opportunities, ArchForKids has something for you!
