Facing a shortage of architects in the US in past years most architecture firms had to go abroad to find architects. Realizing that the USA puts little emphasis of the career of architecture a simple slide show was developed to teach young children what an architect is and what an architect does. Children in the USA, in grades 1 to 4, are introduced to becoming doctors, policemen, teachers and firefighters, but rarely are they aware of what architects, engineers and planners are, so this slide show opens the mind of the child to other possibilities and helps explain a part of their lives (physical dwellings and their physical communities).
