AIA Box City

Join the architects of AIA Austin for a fun design-build activity! Children learn about architecture by recreating a miniature version of downtown Austin, using only recyclable materials such as paper, plastic & cardboard boxes. A city grid on astroturf serves as our blank canvas, awaiting students’ creativity to develop a thriving city. Age oriented activities will be available for the duration of the event, with the Box City activities geared towards grades 3rd-6th. Younger siblings may be assisted by their parent or guardian.

The Dumpster Project

The Dumpster Project is transforming a 36-square-foot trash dumpster into an environmentally friendly human home. The project also hopes to spark interest in the way that fun and forward-thinking innovation can help address the challenges facing both current and future generations as our world becomes increasingly complex. The Dumpster Project is many things: a re-imagining of home, a portable learning initiative, a sustainability conversation, a creative branch of a wider green campus initiatives at Huston-Tillotson University (HT), and, most importantly, an innovative STEM education platform that uses the real-world challenge of transforming a trash dumpster into a tiny sustainable home to inspire learners of all ages. Climb into the Dumpster home and explore its features and interactive displays.
