Kinetic Climate will introduce you to architectural and environmental design concepts revealing the relationship between buildings and climate change. You'll learn the digital and fabrication skills needed to design and make a creative, Internet of Things powered kinetic sculpture to reflect on what you have learned and exhibit it at the end of the 5 day club.
Are you interested in architecture, engineering, programming or the built environment? Want to explore a subject further before making important choices on what course and where to study at university? Kinetic Climate gives you the chance to experience what studying BSc Architecture and Environmental Design at The University of Westminster is like, free from the pressures of school and exams. It's free to attend and we can also help with travel costs.
You must be able to attend all 5 sessions.
