Design & Build Academy

Design and Build students on a field trip.

The Design and Build Academy at Garden Lakes Elementary School inspires students to create a better, more sustainable world by providing hands-on education that integrates design as a creative, interactive process. Today’s students have grown up in an age of “green” choices. Students learn how to apply this concept to the fields of architecture and construction by exploring dimensioning, measuring, and architectural sustainability.

Students will:

  • Create design and construction drawings for commercial and residential buildings
  • Create detailed plans using computer-aided design software and three-dimensional modeling simulations to enforce spatial concepts
  • Learn theories of construction, current products, technology and building codes
