Programs for Schools

For schools, ArchForKids provides STEAM programs that enrich curriculum, both during the school day and afterschool hours.  

Openings available beginning in January 2022. Contact us now to reserve a spot!

School Residencies

Our core program is a 2- to 12-session STEAM-based residency that enriches curriculum. Schools select a grade level and theme. Our experienced educators take it from there and work to tailor a program to support and enhance classroom curriculum. In an optional end-of-residency celebration, students present their work to their families and the school community.

    Bridge Design

    Janny runs a fantastic program for children in schools, in libraries, and for afterschool programs. I remember the spectacular NYC landmarks that the students and teachers created in the cafeteria after many weeks of creating and connecting.
