Project H: Toolbox for Design-Based Projects in the Classroom

Project H's website offers an amazing toolbox of in the classroom design-based lesson plans and projects. Check them out here

Take a look around and get inspired by the rest of the website too! :) 

 "Project H uses the power of creativity, design, and hands-on building to amplify the raw brilliance of youth, transform communities, and improve K-12 public education from within. Our programs teach rigorous design iteration, tinkering, applied arts and sciences, and vocational building skills to give young people the creative, technical, and leadership tools necessary to make positive, long-lasting change in their lives and their communities.

Our youth-led public design projects are rooted in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) content to connect in-school learning to out-of-school possibility. We believe that design is a powerful medium that is an active response to a context, a personal expression, a physical challenge, and a social act that builds citizenship in the next generation.

Exploring the intersection of physical sciences, engineering, architecture, design, social justice, and community development, projects built by our youth include an award winning 2,000 square-foot farmers market structure, iconic downtown landmarks, farmstands, playgrounds, school gardens, an obstacle course, public chicken coops, and their own learning facilities."
