Arizona Kids Build: The Nature of Shelter
November 18, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm| $5.00
Does your child love to build? Have they ever wondered about the “built environment” that they live in? Then Arizona Kids Build: The Nature of Shelter is just the program for them! This all day event (9am-2:30pm) designed for 4th -6th graders gives students an opportunity to learn about the “built environment” and how it directly affects their own well-being and that of the natural environment in a fun and interactive way.
Through interactive lessons and project design, students will gain an understanding of sun angles, orientation, scale, spatial and emotional needs. Students will use their new-found knowledge to create a model for a personal structure that provides shelter from the elements as well as physical and emotional comfort.
Please pre-register at Arizona Kids Build: The Nature of Shelter. The cost is $5. Lunch will be provided to students by AIA Arizona Educational Outreach Committee and CAAF – Central Arizona Architecture Foundation.
