High School Workshops


This one-day workshop will allow high school students to experience a realistic exercise in understanding the fundamental forces that affect development in our communities.

Ball State instructors and alumni passionate about the built environment engage with high school students through a partnership with Project Lead the Way.

High school students grades 9-12 learn about architecture, site evaluation, ecology, sustainability, planning, sketching, and 3D modeling.

High school students will experience a variety of design fields such as architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning.
