DREAM BIG with Design

Landscape architects are taking the world by storm by designing everything from school communities, to skateboard parks, healing gardens, zoos, resorts, museums, aquariums, and theme parks like Disney World and Legoland.

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) wants to introduce students to the exciting world of landscape architecture with its first-ever PreK-12 Summit for students. The two-day virtual Summit, entitled DREAM BIG with Design, is the perfect kick-off event for the 2021-2022 school year.

Scheduled for Thursday, September 23 and Friday, September 24, DREAM BIG with Design will showcase landscape architecture and hands-on PreK-12 learning sessions for students through a dynamic forum among PreK-12 educators and ASLA members from across the country. 

ASLA, with its member community of 15,000 landscape architects, have developed programs to blend easily into almost any existing PreK-12 STEM curricula. Educators can connect with our 49 local chapters to bring a landscape architect to your classroom and build on the DREAM BIG with Design experience.

  • Two-Day Virtual Event for PreK-12 Students on Thursday, September 23 and Friday, September 24
