Presented by Linda Hall Library in partnership with AIA Kansas City.

Are you a student thinking about a career as an architect? If so, join us for an opportunity to get academic and career advice from a panel of architects from The American Institute of Architects Kansas City. During this interactive Q&A session, students will have the chance to ask questions about coursework, internships, college and certificate programs, and anything else about becoming a successful architect!

Parents, teachers, and mentors are also encouraged to participate.
