The annual Building Construction Camp is open to teens (9th-12th graders) considering a career in architecture or building science. Students in this camp will learn construction basics and how to integrate building design with site, climate, function, and “green” considerations. Each day will include instruction by faculty in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction as well as hands-on activities. Participants stay and dine on-campus. In addition, students will participate in social and recreational activities.
