Architecture in Education (AIE) Program
Architecture in Education is a STE[A]M focused, Florida Standards Based, educational program by the Florida Foundation for Architecture. Architecture in Education (AIE) is a dynamic, eight to ten week, curriculum-enrichment program that matches professional architects with classroom teachers. AIE sharpens a student’s math, social studies, art, and other core academics with real-life, project-based learning.
Crawford Tracey Corporation has generously sponsored an annual raffle to benefit the AIE program. In 2021, the raffle raised $5,285.

Open Door Program
The Foundation Open Door Program is a state-wide initiative that invites members of the public into well-known public buildings for behind-the-scenes tours. Each year, buildings that are part of the AIA Florida People's Choice Competition are opened to the public to provide Florida residents and visitors alike a chance to see the building from a different perspective. More information on other Foundation events are provided here.
