Architectural Studio Tinkerings: Workshop at the Hellenic Conference on Innovating STEM Education

This workshop brings the pedagogical practices of the architecture studio to center stage; we argue that introducing architecture as a subject in STEM-integrating school curriculums may result in substantial innovations within K-12 education. In our approach, architecture is not perceived as an added discipline, but rather, as a flexible platform for integrating STEM subjects through hands-on, project-based learning practices.

With contributions by architects and educators from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Dartmouth College and the National Technical University of Athens School of Architecture, we will explore different aspects of creativity, as experienced in the architecture studio, with or without the use of automatic machines. 

In the general objective of nurturing creativity, what makes the contribution of the architectural approach unique? In what ways do those particular pedagogical features enable the architectural studio to operate as the ideal platform for a STEM-integrating k-12 education?

Architectural Studio Tinkerings addresses everyone interested in exploring project-based learning practices for nurturing students creativity, in integrative, interdisciplinary, collaborative ways.
