Interior Design: Saturday, March 19, 2022, 3 p.m.-5 p.m.
Do you have what it takes to design a house? The more creative, the better! Grab whatever materials you have available, or purchase some to create and design a house and its interior. You can use LEGO® bricks, markers, crayons, colored pencils, Lincoln Logs, clay, or any other materials you like. This project consists of two workshops, giving students the tools necessary to create and design the layout for a house, room by room. Featuring: A special presentation on traditional Hmong housing, so youth can learn about types of homes designed in places outside of the United States. Prizes will be awarded for the best student house designs by a vote of "likes" on the Young Builders and Designers Facebook page. Prizes will also be posted to the group's Facebook page in February.
