Architecture for Kids

Join Team GCM member, Chris, in his intro to a fun architecture for kids series! And then learn more about architecture from our friends at the Tampa Bay Foundation for Architecture & Design!

Understand how architects use scale to measure and draw a floor plan. Put your skills to the test by measuring and drawing your bedroom, then calculate its area and volume.

Have fun learning about the basics of architecture by creating colorful diagrams of spaces, and use programming to identify the functions of a building.

Master structure while defying gravity by constructing a spaghetti and marshmallow tower, or a toothpick and gummy bear bridge.
