The School for Creative Thinkers was set up by the Museum of Architecture to teach the next generation about problem solving, design skills and innovation. These life lessons will be valuable in any profession children choose to pursue. We believe in learning through making, creating and collaboration. Children will learn new concepts, listen to stories, see examples of work done by architects and apply this learning to an in-session project that they will take home. Our courses are created and run by a team of teachers, architects and designers.
The SfCT classes are going online! Visit the School for Creative Thinkers website to find out more.
