While working at home during lockdown Life Skills students started a new project to explore the use of renewable energy sources and materials.

Students have been asked to design a home of the future. They investigated the reducing, recycling and reusing of materials and objects. The effects of what we produce on the environment and what we could do to limit any damaging effects. They considered what the needs of a house in the future could be taking into consideration a changing climate and use of different materials.

I am very proud to say that students have been working hard on this project and have been using imaginative ways to approach their vision for a house of the future. Students have been using Lego, Knex, cardboard boxes and even Mind Craft to illustrate what they think a house of the future may look like.
