Students will again modify their tiny home design from level 1 and 2 to incorporate a Eco/sustainable feature to the house. They will be influenced by a exploration topic which is done in the first term. This is where they take an idea or experience and use this to influence their design.
Students will have the opportunity to use computer aided design software which is cloud based and can be accessed at home.
If a student has not taken DVC in level 1 or 2 then they will design a tiny home using the influence of there exploration topic.
