High School Camp
The college offers an exciting summer high school camp: the Career Explorations in Architecture, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture Workshop. This camp offers a unique experience to investigate issues surrounding design, learn more about the design professions and what it's like to be a college student.
Lincoln, Nebraska, June 17 – June 22, 2018
This workshop, developed for high school students at all levels, provides a unique experience to investigate issues surrounding design and learn more about the design professions of architecture, landscape architecture and interior design. The workshop provides learning opportunities in the form of discussions, design studio explorations, field trips and video presentations.
The central focus of the workshop is a design studio where students explore design issues and nurture creative energies. As part of the workshop students will learn about architectural conventions, practice client/designer scenarios, explore various career opportunities, visit architecturally significant buildings and iconic landscapes and develop fundamental skills necessary for the study of design.
Who Can Participate?
Students who have completed two or more years of their high school education and have an interest in architecture, landscape architecture or interior design are encouraged to apply to the workshop. You do not need courses in art or drafting in order to participate. Applicants will be selected on the basis of a review of materials submitted with the application. We have reserved space for 36 students in each workshop, so register early. Those who attend are eligible for a $1,000 UNL College of Architecture Student Scholarship drawing to be held during camp.
How Much Will It Cost?
For the Career Explorations Workshop, the fee is $585 per participant. This includes studio supplies, program fees, meals and lodging. Students participating in this residential program are supervised overnight while in the residence hall by College of Architecture staff.
