Our outreach activities include primary school workshops, design and build summer projects in Indonesia and constructing new facilities in Zambia.
To support the aims of this project, undergraduate students from the School, with support from the University’s Schools Partnership Project and WJEC have developed a series of free teaching and learning resources.
These include worksheets, step-by-step lesson tasks and PowerPoint presentations to introduce architecture through the Primary and Welsh Baccalaureate curriculum.
