AFSF seeks systemic change in K-12 public education by invoking the creative power of the design process to engender a culture of curiosity and personal initiative in our students.
AFSF involves elementary and secondary students in a mentored appreciation of architecture, engineering, construction and the design process. Our programs are unique, combining architects, engineers, designers and business leaders with expertise in the practical world of design and development with teachers’ knowledge of their academic discipline and their skills in pedagogy. This combination of professionals allows students to become the artists and creators they were meant to be. It brings meaning and context to their education.
