CADC to Host New Design and Construction Discovery Camp
The College of Architecture, Design and Construction (CADC) hosts a number of camps for high school students each summer through Auburn Youth Programs, an initiative of Auburn’s Office of Continuing and Professional Education. The college currently hosts camps in building science, architecture and industrial design, but this year a new camp called Design and Construction Discovery Camp will expose campers to each of the six areas of study in the CADC.
At Design and Construction Discovery Camp, rising high school juniors and seniors will be able to explore all of CADC’s undergraduate majors, which include architecture, landscape architecture, environmental design, industrial design, graphic design and building science. Each day of the camp will focus on one of the three schools in the CADC and students will host an exhibition of work on the final day. Students will learn about each of the majors and their potential careers through a project-based curriculum taught by CADC faculty. The camp is open to all students but focuses on those who self-identify as members of underrepresented populations.
This scholarship camp allow students to live on campus for five days, experiencing life as a college student. As a scholarship camp, all students selected will have the $800 camp fee waived. Applications must be completed by March 31 and those students who are accepted will be notified on April 14.
