Through our immersive program offerings, we are able to introduce young people to rigorous problem-solving skills needed to design projects and teach the manual skills needed to build those projects.
Students learn about 2-D & 3-D problem-solving by designing projects which begin at architectural model scale and continue to building solutions at full scale. They learn model making and drawing skills. The tools they will learn to use: drawing tools, t -squares & triangles, scales, and drawing software. To build their solutions, they will be taught to use: tape measures, saws, sanders, hammers, drills, files, and other tools, both manual and power.
Building Futures provides workshops for young people from kindergarten through twelfth grade. We provide in-school programs, after-school programs, summer camps, and free Saturday workshops throughout the entire year. Our free Saturday workshops are for 4th grade through 12th grade. You can choose from the two times offered on that day. There is an AM workshop from 10:00 am to 12:00 PM (noon) and an afternoon workshop from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. We hold these workshop hours every Saturday - fall, winter, spring, and summer.
