Atascadero Middle School

Inspiring Creative Exploration through a Hands-On, Learner-Driven Experience

Green shop is a multidisciplinary shop class that combines traditional woodworking with alternative energies, sustainability, re-purposing, and design. Emphasis is given to projects that not only teach woodworking skills but that also provide students with the opportunity to bring their own unique perspective to the exploratory design process. Greenshop is intended to inspire creative thought and challenge students to explore the boundaries of design. Students choose the projects that they would like to build based upon what interests them the most, collaborating on group projects as well as working on their own individual work.
