The Bullis Charter School Woodworking Club partnered with Simply Shelter to construct temporary shelters for people in need.

Bullis Charter School math teacher Justin Trinh-Halperin took his design-a-living-shelter project to the next level by having his students build a tiny home for people in need. They ultimately built two such homes for Simply Shelter, the result of a collaboration with other middle schoolers at the Los Altos campus.

Seventh-grader and Los Altos resident Palaash Araujo, who founded the BCS Woodworking Club, said last spring’s project exposed him to a variety of woodworking techniques the students would not have learned otherwise, while also connecting BCS middle school students.
