K-12 Design Education and Outreach  

The K-12 Design Education and Outreach Community provides a forum for individuals and organizations with a dedication for kindergarten thru twelfth grade design education and outreach to connect with each other. Members are encouraged to share ideas, curriculum, challenges and successes with in-school and extracurricular programs and events that enlighten and educate K-12 students, families, and educators about architecture, sustainability and/or design.

Under this community, we welcome discussions on the events that you and/or your organizations provide to the public, such as student architectural tours, youth architecture fairs, career days and design competitions, and your programs with a focus on more extensive, long-term involvement in public, private and charter schools. Our goal is to learn from and inspire each other.

Universal Design  

Universal Design has been defined as “the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.” This definition was developed by the architect Ron Mace, FAIA, an architect and the founder of the Center for Universal Design at N.C. State University. In recent years, architects and designers in the US and abroad have come to recognize significant and growing overlaps between Universal Design principles and emerging values of social and environmental sustainability.
