  Adventure Architecture Program (Edutainment)
The Institute of Destination Architects and Designers Youth Education Program offers opportunities to engage children in Destination/Coastal Architecture and design activities linking art, drama, science, technology, mathematics, language arts and social studies.

IDAD supports this by bringing Destination/Coastal architecture projects into K-12 classrooms, introducing teachers to travel and destination design curricula and its potential benefits for youth.

Volunteer architects-in-residence work with youth education programs, teamed with K-12 teachers to co-develop, plan and support Destination and Coastal Architecture instruction themes. The possible themes range from travel and tourism topics to live entertainment and the performing arts.

By observing, drawing, taking photographs, measuring and map-making, youth in grades K-12 engage in project-based simulation of design problems. Students develop design solutions, draw plans, write programs, and build scale models to study, test and show their solutions.

Children in grades 6-12 classroom sessions communicate their environmental design and destination solutions in presentations, drawings and scale models. They use mathematics and the design process; they research international law, geography, tourism, management, history, and explore the science and technologies of the professions of Building/Land and Destination Architecture.

Students answer the questions "Who, What, When, Where, and Why?" by considering what makes a successful destination, themepark, beach, etc., by analyzing project factors, and researching human needs. Students explore the ecology, geometry and structure of natural sites, increasing eco-literacy.

Students use the Design Process, apply imagination and rational thinking to solve, justify and communicate solutions to problems or identify a problem or design opportunity.

Students choose among solutions and implement a solution that conforms to the design constraints, evaluate the solution against design criteria, communicate the problem, process, and solution.

Students apply mathematical problem solving as a method of simple inquiry in a variety of forms such as statistics, estimation, making and using measurements.

Students use Destination exploration and discovery to make multicultural and International connections and develop a sense of stewardship for protecting human beings, and the environment which sustains them for future generations.

Students use language purposefully as they comprehend international information during destinations research, and communicate with others.
