A group of high school students from Berkeley, California have built a marvelous solar-powered tiny home complete with sleeping and storage areas. The house was created under the supervision of experienced architects and builders, and as part of a youth program by non-profit organization Studio H, which aims to teach kids engineering and architecture skills.
In fact, the students created two identical tiny homes. One of them was donated to an Oregon-based organization that provides transitional housing for homeless people, while the other is currently up for sale on eBay -- with proceeds slated towards funding Studio H's programs next year.
This project is a laudable feat by the high school students, but is also a great example of how education and social good can go hand-in-hand.
