Students Build Modular Housing for Habitat for Humanity

Sixteen high school students and their carpentry teacher from a program begun at Walter W. Brown High School in Langham, Saskatchewan, Canada constructed a modular building that will provide housing for four low-income families in Saskatoon. The students constructed all of the 660 square foot units in eight months, from top to bottom, according to, as Mayor Don Atchison and other dignitaries stuck symbolic shovels into the ground where the homes will be sited in June. understands this initiative, part of the Da Vinci Project, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, seeks to give students real-world learning as they transition out of high school. Eleventh-grader Kristen Wall perhaps put it best: “It definitely sticks in your brain more when you’re doing stuff with your hands. You’ll remember that for your life, whereas if you write a test on something it will just be with you for that week.” ##
