Can you design a home and convince local home builders to build it for members of the community who cannot afford a home of their own?

Students learn about local homeless situations and then design and build a home to combat the situation that many of their community members face everyday. Local community stakeholder groups (city council, home builders, and members of the local community) will have input and guidance for the students as they plan, design, draw and build their prototype home.

This project includes elements of measurement, angles, ratios & scale drawings, 2-D and 3-D shapes, area & perimeter. The students will partake in a design challenge that incorporates a real-world problem for them to solve around a local controversial issue. Students will have to collaborate together to design a home that city council, community stakeholders and local builders select to assist with local homeless concerns.
