What do Teachers and Students Think?


From Teachers

I have used the Arizona Kids Build Program for two years and have found it to be a wonderful experience for the children and the teachers.  It is a program that is engaging, educational, creative and fun.  My classes have looked forward to their lessons and enjoyed the curriculum that challenged them to learn about how our environment and architecture can affect each other.  I appreciate that the curriculum has a lot of hands on learning that challenges my students to problem solve and use their imaginations.  I have had a few students comment after the program that they are interested in being architects.  What a wonderful curriculum that can open a child's world a little bigger and show them things they have never thought of before.

The Kids Build program was a great learning experience because it taught us about architecture and how to build cool stuff.

The Kids build program was awesome because it interacted with nature and modern shelters.
