Design + Architecture: 5-day Camp 2 (Jun)

About this event

A 5-day Holiday Camp designed for children to explore various make and build projects; to test ideas through hands-on exploration, training dexterity, creative and critical thinking while learning new skills.

On day 1, children will explore model making and be creative to Build a TreeHouse with consideration for its form, features, levels, platforms and openings. With a natural tree branch given as a site context, children will visualize their design and learn the support and access needed for their TreeHouse design. 

On Day 2 and 3, students will continue their creative exploration to Design a Playground while working in small groups. Students will learn to team work to design and build their ideal playground prototype by first exploring what makes a playground space fun and memorable. Students are encouraged to be creative in their findings as they apply Design Thinking principles in understanding the needs and challenges of who they are designing for. 

Students are also encouraged to explore ways to keep their playground accessible to children (and adults) of all abilities, promoting inclusive play for all. 

For the last 2 days of the week, students will Design My Room and be introduced to floor layout planning, furniture types, materials, colors and textures to personalize and decorate their personal bedroom spaces. 

Students will learn model-making techniques and get creative transforming everyday materials into their own unique bedroom model prototype.
