PROJECT PIPELINE PROGRAMMING
At our Project Pipeline Workshops, I-NOMA and NOMAS volunteers go to Chicagoland elementary or middle schools and youth centers to conduct Intro to Architecture seminars. Students are led through a series of design exercises that include sketching and model-making to learn about design as a tool for social change.
CAREER DAY SPEAKER
I-NOMA members are architects and design professionals with diverse backgrounds and we are passionate about the work that we do. As a result, we enjoy sharing our professional experience to inspire future generations of architects that will shape our world. If engaged for a Career Day, I-NOMA will send a design professional(s) to talk about a career in architecture and design and the many different paths that students can follow to get there.
I-NOMA volunteers will discuss:
Educational requirements to become an architect
The unique and exciting challenges of design studio in college
What it’s like to work in Chicago as an architect

STEM/CAREER FAIR ATTENDANCE
If your school/ organization is planning a stem fair or career for your students, I-NOMA would love to send a representative to join your event. We are also connected to a network of people that host STEM/ Career Fairs throughout the city of Chicago, for middle and high school students. We can connect you to these events that are open to the general public, to help you get your students involved.
PIPELINE FIELD TRIPS
To become an amazing designer we believe you have to experience amazing design. Past field trip destinations include Willis Tower, the Union Station Renovation, Unity Temple by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Chicago Architecture Center, and many more.
Participation is open to members, Pipeline students, friends of I-NOMA and guests. Field trips are posted on the Events page as they are scheduled. To sign up for our field trips please see our Events page. If you have a large group interested in a field trip, please email email@example.com.
