What You'll Do:

Little Architects Design Studio is an 8-week virtual program designed to introduce young students to Architectural concepts and skills in a fun, collaborative, and hands-on experience! Students will learn drawing techniques, 3D modeling software, how to build prototype models, and so much more.

How does a virtual program work?
Parents must prepare a workspace for their children in their home and acquire the listed tools and materials. Students will log on to our virtual platform each week at the specified time slots for instruction, collaboration, and presenting. There is also content on the online platform for off-screen activities relating to their projects that they can work on at their own pace as well as the ability to send messages to the lead instructors if they have any questions.

Do students need any prior experience?
No, students will be introduced to all the basic concepts in the program.

What is Moonlighter FabLab?
Moonlighter is a membership-based digital fabrication lab, creative co-working space, and STEAM learning center in Miami, Florida. It features a range of digital fabrication equipment like 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, sewing machines, circuits and more to help people of all ages build (almost anything) they can imagine. Moonlighter has won multiple awards for its unique approach to innovation and education. Their programs have reached over 3,500 students, over 15 schools, and has partnered with wonderful local institutions like the Frost Science Museum, The Bass Museum, The Wolfsonian Museum, ArtCenter South Florida, The Bakehouse Art Complex, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Miami Dade College, Mano Americas, The Downtown Development Authority, and more. They have been featured on NBC6, The Miami Herald, Metropolis Magazine, The New Tropic, The New Times, and Telemundo, and had been invited to the White House for the initial Nation of Makers Conference in 2016, organizing maker spaces from across the country to help their communities learn and build the innovations that drive our future. Our programs are highly rated and you can learn more about our previous educational programs here.

Who will be leading the Program?
Tom Pupo and Daisy Nodal are the Co-Founders of Moonlighter FabLab. After earning their Masters of Architecture from Florida International University, they taught at the SOA Design Studio for two years before opening Moonlighter. They now create one-of-a-kind STEAM educational experiences via workshops, camps, field trips and events, where they introduce all ages to the latest technologies available. Other successful educational programs they produce include Miami Dade College Continuing Education Summer Program and Maker Camp at Doral Conservatory of the Arts and Spring Camp STEAM Sessions at the BASS Museum. As strong advocates of the Maker Movement, they believe that hands-on learning is not only the most effective but the most inspiring in the development of a child.
