Here is the blog post that gives an overview.
The forward-thinking curriculum of Studio H is designed for the true 21st-century student. It's based on real-world applications, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and immersive student collaboration.
Here is the website related to Studio H
Studio H is a high school design/build curriculum for rural community benefit. The one-year program is offered to Junior-year students of the Bertie County school district in North Carolina, providing college credit, a summer job, and a hands-on opportunity to build real-world projects for the community (in this, our first year, we’ll build chicken coops and a farmer’s market in downtown Windsor!). By learning through a design sensibility and “dirt-under-your-fingernails” construction skills, we’re developing creativity, critical thinking, citizenship, and capital to give students the skills they need to succeed, while building the assets the community needs to survive. Given the opportunity to engage within a public education system, we believe the next generation will be the greatest asset and untapped resource in rural communities’ futures.
It was the video on this page that caught my attention.
Now this is a very poor county in the USA that is funded by foundations. But as a concept it can be adapted anywhere on the globe.
