The human population continues to grow as living space shrinks. People are starting to think of ways to make the most out of a smaller space. Your challenge will be to design and construct a living space that could have many uses including a living room, kitchen and bedroom. Students will use the design thinking process as they do research, grow empathy for those already experiencing this issue, and build and refine prototypes. This class will require hands-on work utilizing several types of building materials already found in the home such as recyclable materials, LEGOs, and potentially a 3-D modeler such as Minecraft.
