FUTURE HOUSE

Students create a house that will exist a century in the future!

What will life on Earth be like a century from now? In our Future House class, students imagine and design their home in the year 2117. First, they study what daily life was like one hundred years ago and then they consider how life might change one hundred years from now. They study the writings of futurists, learn about new "smart homes" and consider what phones, stoves, sofas, televisions and cars might look like a century from now. Students use math, writing and presentation skills as they draw up an extensive blueprint of their future house and work with geometric calculations as they design their blueprint. Time travel may not be possible but our students will be headed for the future.
