Architecture Workshops STEM & STEAM Workshops For Key Stage 3, 4 & 5

KS3, 4 & 5 Hands-On Workshops In Schools

Make Learning Fun & The Complex Simple

Architecture Workshops have been running hands-on cross-curricular workshops, in schools for all Key stages and Abilities since 1996. Our workshops experiences are the best your students are ever likley to be involved in and something that will stay with them throughout their educational life. All the workshops involve STEM subjects to different degrees, challenging, enthralling and educating in equal measure. The materials we use are simple, just dowel and rubber bands with which we instruct the students to fashion many varied and wonderous building models, structures and sculptures. Utilising problem solving, teamwork and resilience students build their self esteem, as the structures grow.

History & Humaniy workshops are focused topic learning. Presenter led pupils work individually in teams and altogether to create huge models of significant pices of architecture or structures; eg Egyptian Pyramid; Mayan Temple; Greek Parthenon; Tudor Globe Theatre; Victorian Crystal Palace; Taj Mahal; Dome of The Rock; Ely Cathedral.
