The Architecture in the Schools Committee seeks to create ties to the K-12 education community by introducing students to the fundamental concepts of architecture and by educating students about architecture as a future career option.

Committee members work with educators to provide useful and relevant classroom exercises introducing architectural concepts, volunteer their time to work with students on architecture-related, hands-on projects, and attend career fairs to share their experiences of being a professional architect. The committee’s mission is “to equip architects and educators with the tools needed to introduce the concepts of architecture to students of all ages.”
