Design as Education
Studio H is a different kind of classroom. Over the course of one calendar year, students earn high school and college credit, and are paid a summer wage to build the community project they have spent the year designing and prototyping.
About Studio H:
Emily Pilloton: Teaching design for change
Studio H is a public high school "design/build" curriculum that sparks rural community development through real-world, built projects. 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 their communities.
Students learn design skills and solve real world problems.
