    Sometimes, Congress actually does something good for architects -

    Hooray!
    This is long overdue and finally speaks to the broad skill set required to be a successful architect and STEM professional.

    Thanks for sharing

    Harry,

    Just to set the record straight, Frank Lloyd Wright’s comment was, “It’s been a long time coming from home,” when he received the AIA Gold Medal in 1949.

    With architecture being recognized as a component of STEM curriculum, we need to actively engage the K-12 community to contribute in delivering it. In an effort to further this objective,  the Inspire Architecture group, connected to the CAE, seeks to bring together architects currently or interested in being directly involved in education programs.

    The group is pursuing the building of a community to share, learn and motivate school engagement. Please contact me at judkline@aol.com,  Melody Harclerode, FAIA at mlharclerode@gmail.com or Garfield Peart, AIA at: garfield.peart@gmail.com to participate in advancing the agenda needed to accelerate integration of architecture into school curriculum.​

    All,
    AIA DC has a very active program to integrate architecture into schools, as well as encouraging STEM for girls.  See the attached link for current and future events:  Programs: For Kids | AIA|DC

    Maybe it should now be STEAM.

    Definitely STEAM.
    We have used the term here in Ann Arbor for several years.
    Happy New Year!

    BTW, The A in STEAM stands for the Arts, not Architecture per se.

    And architecture combines all of what the letters stand for in STEAM. I think I can live with that.

    As Edward Gauvreau, the AIA DC and the Washington Architectural Foundation have been engaging K-12 students in hands-on, project based learning for over 25 years through the Architecture in the Schools program (https://www.aiadc.com/program/architecture-schools) in addition to our other recent additions such as Design Like a Girl, Tools of the Trade and Children's Neighborhood Walking Tours (which are now available online). The Architects and Design Educators Network ( A+DEN - http://aaonetwork.org/groups/architecture-design-education-network ) through AAO has been fostering this collaboration of educators and architects for many years.

     

    We should build upon the successes programs in Washington, New York, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, Dallas, Cranbrook, Carnegie Mellon and many others around the country.

     

    If you are not familiar with A+DEN, contact John Comazzi and Kelly Lyons for more information.
