Teach, lead and inspire students to explore architecture, design and the built environment.

The CAC offers educators unique, in-depth learning opportunities to explore architecture, construction, engineering and design concepts. Our hands-on training and award-winning curriculum will help you use design thinking and the built environment to teach core academic subjects and inspire future designers.


Throughout the year, the CAC hosts a variety of professional development events and training for formal and informal educators. From educator open houses to week-long summer institutes, we want to help you expand your knowledge. In a collaborative environment, we address central themes and issues in social studies, history, urbanization, technology and design through the study of the built environment.
