Design and Education in Rural America

This is a great example of how using design in a school can have a wider impact on the community. Project H has not only redesigned school spaces in a small rural American town, it has also developed a design education programme where the students collectively build useful projects for their community – one a year. This year they are going to build a farmer’s market, then a bus shelter next year, then home improvements for the elderly in the third year.

Perhaps projects such as Enabling Technology could be brought to life through working with schools in the same way?
