Students in DownCity Discovery, our middle school program, designed brand new nesting boxes for barred owls, bluebirds, and wood ducks at the Audubon Society of RI. Our young designers practiced research skills, design thinking, and safe tool use to build these new homes for their feathered clients!

SCLT Youth Farm Shade Shed
Southside Community Land Trust, Providence, Summer 2017
12 Providence teens collaborated to create this shed for the Youth Farmers at Southside Community Land Trust’s Somerset-Hayward Farm. The Youth Farm provides teens with an opportunity to learn about food security and urban agriculture, and the shed will give the young farmers a place to store their tools, gather and rest during breaks. Our young designers loved designing for their peers!
