AIA Event Update from the Big Island

Big Island Architecture Day at STEM Camp

On May 31 the Hawaii Island Section of AIA Honolulu teamed up with the Kealakehe High School robotics team to present Architecture Day at their annual STEM Camp. The theme for this year was Tension and Compression.  

Over one hundred students grades 3 through 8 learned about how these fundamental engineering concepts are used in architecture, infrastructure, and robotics through games and hands-on activities.

Each student built a tensegrity structure with straws and rubber bands. Then teams of 6 students built platforms out of popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners.  The platforms were tested by placing small robots of different weights onto the platforms.

AIA member Architects Shane Kitchens, Zon Sullenberger, Shaun Roth along with intern architect Erik Tremain served as mentors.
