Join KidsBuild! at BSA Space on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7. Guided by professional architects, families will choose a construction site from a fictional city grid, design and build a building from recycle materials, and be awarded a certificate of occupancy from the city building inspectors. Geared for children age five–13, KidsBuild! lets children understand and formulate ideas about architecture and design as they build a city from the ground up.

This event will occur all day from 10:00 am–4:00 pm.

If you have registered, please note that your TICKET TYPE is your registration time NOT the start time of the event. If you are on the wait-list or have not yet registered, we welcome walk-ins. Sunday is usually less busy than Saturday.
