KidsBuild! will be held at BSA Space on Saturday, April 11 and Sunday April 12, 2015. Guided by professional architects, families will choose a construction site from a fictional city grid, design and build a building, and be awarded a certificate of occupancy from the city building inspectors. Geared for children age 5 -13, KidsBuild! lets children understand and formulate ideas about architecture and design as they build a city from the ground up.

Doing an office cleanup? KidsBuild! needs your outdated samples

Paint chips, laminate samples, fabric swatches—we’ll take it all! Since KidsBuild! will be a two-day event, we are asking for double the donated materials! We are accepting donations now through early April, thanks to the generosity and storage space of Gensler. Please click here to donate materials, or email us at for more information. KidsBuild! is supported by the BSA Foundation; to learn more, visit KidsBuild!

Check out the Learning by Design program for activities throughout the year which teach children about the building industry.
