Students have collaborate to design and build a multi-functional outdoor space that teachers and students can use for lunch, relaxation, study time, or classroom space.  Williamsburg Junior/Senior High School did not have an outdoor area where students can congregate.  By providing such an area, students could not only provide the school with an alternative gathering area but also provide staff with an additional class meeting option. In addition to the outdoor opportunities provided, the area also addresses energy issues such as alternative energy sources (solar) while providing STEM opportunities for staff and students alike.
