“The 2016-2017 school year is upon us! We would love to have you participate in the Architects in Schools program!
Architects in Schools is administered by the Architecture Foundation of Oregon and matches professional landscape architects and other design professionals with primarily 3rd, 4th and 5th grade teachers for a 6-week free classroom residency (approximately 1-2 hours a week per class – the schedule is decided by the design professional and teacher). Students participating in architects in schools learn important skills through lessons that include cooperation and planning and help them gain a better sense of how school relates to the ‘real world.’ Design professionals share their passion and professional knowledge with students eager to learn about design and their world. Design professionals volunteer their time because sharing their passion for architecture with students energizes them.
