In our summer youth model making workshops Arc.I.Tek has three different age/grade levels to the competition:
Novice: Grades 1-4
Apprentice: Grades 5-8
Distinguished: Grades 9-12
The grand prize for the Distinguished age group is an internship at Miller Hull Architects – total score! The winning student will have some major cookie points to showcase on his/her college resume. “Who me? Yea, I already did an internship before I even WENT to college!” (Winning!) With such an awesome grand prize in one group, we wanted to make sure the other groups had similarly awesome, age appropriate prizes.
One winning student will receive a Family Fun Deluxe Membership to KidsQuest Children’s Museum in Factoria!
KidsQuest Children’s Museum is a great 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on the support of the community through memberships and donations, and the support of local corporations and foundations. Here is some more info about them and what a perfect fit they are with Arc.I.Tek:
Create learning through the power of play and exploration that connects children to their communities and the world
Be the trusted educational and cultural institution for all children and their families in the Puget Sound Region.
Whole Family Learning
We support and encourage learning that engages the whole family – children, their parents and their broader family– and offers opportunities for children and adults to learn together, about themselves and each other. Understanding that each individual learns differently, our exhibits and programs meet the needs of different age groups and learning styles.
Innovation and Leading Edge Learning
We use emerging research and studies in early childhood education and family support to develop creative programs and exhibits. We practice flexibility and, when appropriate, risk-taking to capitalize on our strengths, resources and opportunities to serve our community.
We place the highest value on our patrons who support our organization and help us accomplish our mission. We respect and appreciate their cultural, social and economic diversity, as well as their unique abilities and contributions.
We are committed to providing exhibits and programming that are accessible to our entire community, while providing age appropriate challenges and growth opportunities for the cognitive, physical, and emotional development stages of all children. We honor and intentionally design diversity into our programming so that our Museum is a reflection of our community.
Community Building and Partnership
We strive to be a trusted community resource for the education of children, their families and our community. Through collaboration and cooperation with public and private partnerships we accomplish more together.
We are trustworthy, open, honest and transparent in everything we do.
We honor and embrace our fiduciary responsibility to manage our resources efficiently and effectively, and to remain accountable to our donors and funders.
