DesignWorks Summer Academy for high school sophomores and juniors

Contributed by: Lori Pence
Published: Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:30 AM
DesignWorks Summer Academy has been called an “immersive, intensive, team-driven, college level experience."

If you know a high school sophomore or junior, who dreams of building skyscrapers, or enjoys nature, or is a champion of causes, then we invite them to attend DesignWorks Summer Academy from July 8 - 20.

Students will experience hands-on creative projects led by expert faculty from the College of Architecture and Planning who encourage them to expand on their ideas. The “let’s try it” environment of DesignWorks Summer Academy is similar to our first year program for new college freshmen and includes a variety of activities in a college studio setting, plus field trips, living on campus, presentations, lectures, and more.
