meet the team
We are a team of architects, artists, illustrators, engineers, coders and inventors that have first-hand experience in our industries. We dedicate part of our week to teaching children, giving them insights into our fields. Alongside our teachers, we have access to a broad range of specialists, from software developers to structural engineers that contribute to our course content. We hope to inspire the students we work with to pursue their own dreams and interests.
