BEEP Events

BEEP hosts a variety of free events, from our Second Saturday virtual KidSketch lessons, to Meet BEEP in the Park.

KidSketch is a series of free virtual lessons to encourage sketching as a way to learn about and explore the world around us, as inspiration for the next generation of built-environment visionaries, and just to have fun! and Meet BEEP in the Park is our yearly in-person event where we share the BEEP mission with the community and kids gather in teams to create giant geodesic domes.
