Florida A&M University
This May, the “I Can Be” Architecture Career Day Workshop at Florida A&M University gave young girls a basic understanding of the architecture profession by helping them design a dream house for their dolls.
The workshop, which took place at the FAMU School of Architecture and Engineering Technology, featured faculty, alumni and community partners who are celebrated for their expertise in the field.
The event presented the elementary students with the long history of successful women architects, offered a glimpse into the design process, as well as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) careers. Forty-two girls, ages 7 to 9, who attend FAMU Developmental Research School in Tallahassee participated in the event.
