Virtual Tiny House Workshop for Kids: Mini-Architecture
October 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The tiny-house movement is sweeping the country! Explore how and why people are building houses that take up a fraction of the space of a typical home and then create your own tiny-house model. Students will learn about architecture, social responsibility, and community as they envision and design their own tiny houses.
They will use clay and found materials to build scale models of their houses. We will explore concepts including sustainability, functionality, and how to incorporate natural light into the house design. Students will practice math skills as they scale their models and workforce skills as they complete their projects within time constraints. To refine their communication skills, students will present their tiny houses to the class.
The course offers an inspiring introduction for students interested in architecture and sustainable design.
All participants in middle school are welcome.
