Free Teacher Event at Thinktank:
Build Your Own Pavilion

Free twilight session for teachers/educators working with young people aged 8-16 years on Monday 9th October 2018 at 4.30-6pm.

Build Your Own Pavilion is a nationwide campaign to celebrate architecture and encourage young architects everywhere to design public spaces for the cities of the future. Inspired by the Serpentine Pavilion, the Serpentine’s annual commission of temporary buildings by world-famous architects, Build Your Own Pavilion invites young people aged 8-16 to consider the relationship between architecture and public space and to design the architecture for the cities they would like to live in.

The TeachMeet will take place on Monday 9 October at 4.30-6.00pm at Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum.

Led by the design-engineer educator team at Kidesign, the TeachMeet will provide a practical framework to deliver independent Build Your Own Pavilion workshops in the classroom, either as a one-off session or over several weeks. Covering researching your neighbourhood and defining a brief, architectural drawing and hands-on model making, there will also be the opportunity to ask questions about how to inspire your young architects and find out more about teaching next generation design technologies such as CAD and 3D printing.

Additional benefits of taking part in Build Your Own Pavilion: 

  • Being part of a local and national network of schools committed to inspiring the next generation of designers and innovators.
  • Expand your students’ skills and creativity with engaging activities that fit art, D&T and geography curricula.

Free event.
