JOIN US ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23RD…
For a Build-Fest and Film Screening to benefit the Studio H design/build program at REALM Charter Middle School.
We invite you to step into our classroom for an evening, and to share the story and experience of Studio H. Studio H is a unique design/build program for 8th grade students at REALM Charter School. Students of Studio H learn creative, critical thinking, and construction skills to build real-world projects and transform their communities. Studio H is an initiative of the nonprofit Project H Design. All proceeds from the evening will fund project material costs for Studio H.
On Saturday, November 23rd, we will open our Studio H classroom to parents and friends and host an interactive, blitz-style build activity for 30 participants (first come first serve). Following the Build-Fest, we will screen the film “If You Build It,” a full-length documentary about the work of Studio H in Bertie County, NC, before we came to REALM, where our students designed and built a 2000-square-foot piece of architecture to change the face of their struggling hometown.
