IF YOU ARE A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT WHOSE PASSION IS TO MAKE THINGS, we have the summer program for you!
Norwich University’s Summer Design Academy 2021 will be a one-week immersive online course, teaching students the essentials of design thinking and architectural composition. Over the week, students will design a small building, using 3D computer modeling programs to communicate how it would be experienced and how it could be built. Hand sketching will be paired with digital design and a Norwich “Sketchbox” will be mailed to each student. Each day, students will explore their project through the application of a different modeling technique and architectural concept.
Morning sessions will be devoted to learning the virtual modeling tools, beginning with technical demonstrations by instructors, followed by labs in small studio teams. Afternoon sessions will begin with lectures by NU professors, followed by individual project work, one-on-one desk critiques with instructors and ending with daily “pin-up” presentations to the class.
At the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of work they will display and present at a public virtual exhibit attended by parents, professors and local architects.
At the Norwich Summer Design Academy, students will gain a broader view of the field, develop skills and portfolio materials and be advised on the college application and portfolio-building processes.
Students that complete the A+A Design Academy may be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship that will apply toward the cost of Norwich University tuition.
The A+A Summer Design Academy is open to students who will be high school sophomores, juniors and seniors in the Fall 2022. The weeklong program’s cost is $350 per student, which includes materials sent to your home.
