The Architecture in the Schools Committee seeks to engage and inspire the K-12 community through inclusive and collaborative educational programs that make architecture accessible, understandable and highly valued throughout the state.

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.”

Co-chairs: Sara Phillips, AIA, and Kelly Martinez, AIA
