On December 11, 2019 researchers in the Hamer Center for Community Design (HCCD) consulted with elementary school students on the design of their class “tiny house” projects. The project was coordinated by the STEAM Coordinator for Penn State York, Carly Wood. Fifth grade students and their art teacher, Roxanne Elfreth, at Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy are working on the project. HCCD participated in the expert learning visit remotely, contributing to the Project Based Learning unit. HCCD representatives answered questions from the students providing insight space optimization, green design options for tiny homes, material selection, and practical expertise in home design.
