From their website:
" Studio H is a design/build program offered to our 10th-grade students. Within a studio and workshop environment, students engage in creative, critical, constructive processes in which they design and build real-world projects for the collective benefit of our school and community. By learning through a design sensibility, applied core subjects, and industry-relevant construction skills, students develop the creative capital, critical thinking, and citizenship necessary for their own success and for the future of our communities. This school year, students will learn how to use industry-standard digital design software, wood and metal shop tools, a laser engraver, drafting tools, and more. We will make sketchbooks, furniture, cardboard architecture, shipping container structures, wood and metal sculpture, a skate park, and anything else we can dream up and bring to life for the greater good.

Studio H is a different kind of classroom. We design, build, and transform.

Studio H is an initiative launched and managed by the nonprofit Project H Design, taught by Matthew Miller (full-time instructor) and Emily Pilloton (part-time instructor and REALM’s Director of Design). View updates from the classroom via the Studio H blog here."
