ArchForKids School Programs

Design Studio

Our core program is a 2- to 12-session STEAM-based residency. Schools select a grade level and theme, from All Around My Community to Bridges: From Here to There (click here to see some possibilities), and our experienced design facilitators take it from there. In an optional end-of-residency celebration, students present their work to their families and the school community.

  • 60 minute sessions (other timeframes are possible upon discussion)
  • Grades pre-K – 12
  • Maximum 5 classes/day
  • Priced by the day: $350 per day for 1 class, $500/day for 2 classes, $600/day for 3 classes, $700/day for 4 classes and $800/day for 5 classes

Price includes a planning session, written curriculum and materials. Certain topics, such as Chair Masters Design Studio, require an extra materials fee.

Afterschool Studios

Enrich your afterschool program with a multi-session ArchForKids residency. It can range from “Adventures in Architecture,” with a different building activity each week, or a thematic series on a topic you select. We infuse all hands-on projects with math, science, art and social studies content in a fun, engaging way. Pricing begins at $200/session.

Design Challenge

A concentrated one-day program in which students use the design process to respond to a challenge – investigating, building and testing possible solutions. At the end, participants present their work to their peers. A great way to culminate a unit of study, investigate a community issue or animate a Maker Space. Possible topics include Space Colony Design, A Structure to Benefit Your Community, Continents Around the World, Park Re-Design, and many other possibilities.

  • Minimum 2-hour program, up to an entire school day
  • Several classes can be accommodated at once if a large space is available
  • Priced according to number of students and timeframe – contact info@archforkids.com for price quotes
  • Grades 1-12

Professional Development

ArchForKids helps educators use project-based STEAM learning and the built environment to bring the subjects they teach to life.  We provide teachers with strategies to integrate architecture into their social studies/math/science/art/ELA lesson plans. Then their students can make the connections between the real world and the concepts/skills they need for future success.

  • 90 minute workshop: $350
  • One-day workshop: $650
