Home Design

March had 7th grade GT finishing up their home design for Ms. Stanush's home floor plan. Students used Tinkercad to build out the design for the floor plan/individual rooms and then presented their homes to Ms. Stanush and Ms. Brooks. They had to follow a list of guidelines and rules, as well as stay within a budget.

Tiny House

Below are photos of groups presenting their tiny home designs to Mrs. Bryant and Mrs. Cowan for the spring STEM project, as well as a video example of everything they had to include for the presentation. Students had to follow a list of guidelines for what Mrs. Bryant is looking for in a tiny home. While presenting the teachers completed a rubric to make sure they followed all their steps. The tiny home that Mrs. Bryant believes to fit her needs the best will be taken to her architect.
