The AIA National has added a new feature to their website. The organization reviews K-12 architecture resources and activities and posts them on their website. On the site, there are activities, videos, interactive programs, and career information. My favorite is #askanarchitect that directs you to youtube and features several interviews.
From the website:
“AIA is regularly reviewing free K-12 architecture resources and activities for students and families to enjoy. These resources can be found below. Thank you to the AIA chapters and members, Association of Architecture Organizations (AAO), and various Architecture Foundations for contributing to resource identification. Special acknowledgement to the staff at AIA New York | Center for Architecture for their contribution to the identification of shareable K-12 resources online.”https://www.aia.org/pages/6287760-k-12-architecture-resources
I highly encourage you to check out the website and explore the resources available whether you know children interested in architecture or not. What’s your favorite feature? What’s a resource you would like to see AIA National add?
