Designing My Future: Architecture Summer Camp for Ages 14 to 18

Organized by the AD EX and AIA Fort Worth

We’re taking our summer high school program on the road! Join us for a three-day summer day camp hosted by the Architecture and Design Exchange, AIA Fort Worth, and AIA Dallas Education Outreach Committee at the UTA Community Design-Build Lab in Arlington, TX. This camp, designed by practicing architects in collaboration with K-12 and nonprofit educators, offers high school students an immersive experience in architecture, design, and engineering. Participants will explore potential career paths and discover how design can empower them to improve their communities. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your horizons and build your portfolio!

  • Sketching workshop
  • Inspirational guest speakers
  • Prize giveaways and much more!
