Teen Architecture Workshop

Please share with your students!

Monday, August 5 – Friday, August 9, 2019

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

We are happy to announce that applications are now open for our 2019 WAM Teen Architecture Workshop—and we hope that you'll share this unique opportunity with your students.

This week-long, immersive workshop offers high school students entering grades 10–12 the opportunity to work with professional architects, engineers, and designers from the University of Minnesota at the museum. Posed as an architectural project, participants will explore, design, and build creative solutions in a professional setting. No specific design experience is necessary, just a keen interest in art, design, engineering, or architecture.

Once again, please email Jamee Yung at jtyung@umn.edu with any questions.

Space is limited! Here's the link for students to apply>>
