Students design, build and paint a wood toy based on wacky animal characters with movable joints and then donate to children in need.
Do you have a student interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)? Maybe they are interested in Architecture, Urban Planning, or Industrial Design? Does thinking and working like a designer sound interesting? Maybe you just want to find something new and interesting to do on a Saturday morning.
Indigo Moose and Design Plus Architects are excited to announce a new series of Saturday Studios that combine art, design, science, and engineering using hands-on projects. They are meant to be fun and creative with a new theme every Saturday, and maybe learn something interesting about our natural, built, or social environments!
Industrial designers make the products that we use in our everyday lives and all around the world to help those in need. These designers create inventions that improve their community, like water filters, energy saving lights and portable shelters.
Albuquerque currently has more than 2,000 homeless children under the age of six. This studio will give students the opportunity to play around as an industrial designer by creating custom, moving toys to donate to children in need. Students will design, build and paint a wood toy based on fun, wacky animal characters with movable joints!
Please register on our website, http://www.designplusabq.com/saturdaystudios, by 7PM on Friday, April 21. Walk-ins are also welcome!
Recommended for grades six to ten. Please contact us if your child is interested but outside of the age range.
