      2020 Summer Camp@CAPPA
      My role is coordinating and leading CAPPA's Summer Camp program in 2020. The College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs annually holds a camp on the University of Texas at Arlington campus for high school students interested in design, architecture and interior design. Campers have the opportunity to meet other students from high schools across North Texas as they engage in drawing and fabrication projects directed by CAPPA faculty in our College studios. In this year, we will focus on design activities that will bring community engagement through hands-on experience of sustainable design at a small scale.
