    Feedback from Summer 2021:

    I enjoyed the program very much and I thought the teachers were kind, encouraging, and provided helpful tips as to how to improve my structure. I thought the program gave me insight into the world of architecture and I loved seeing all of the different aspects of engineering that go into designing and creating a house.

    The program involves spending a week designing and building our own architectural models. I liked the amount of creative freedom and the opportunity to see Boston architecture, and I enjoyed the amount of constructive feedback.

    We were given a lot of hands-on equipment, and the project was also really enjoyable to create
