With the Tiny House movement gaining momentum all over the world, the Year 5 class have taken on the challenge to build miniature 3D version of Tiny Houses using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) principles. Teacher, Lindsay Burke said the students were producing some amazing models with very detailed interiors. “The Tiny House STEM Project involves building a tiny house using perimeter, area and geometry skills focusing on design elements and problem-solving skills as well as classroom collaboration,” he said. ”

We are exploring the application of real-world maths concepts used to build and design homes.” Once the Tiny House models are finished with four walls and a removable roof, they will be assembled into a street.
