As part of the Milton Hershey (Pa.) High School engineering and design pathway, seniors are using Revit, architecture design software to design their own campus homes. Students create floor plans in 2-D while simultaneously creating a 3-D model of the structure of the house. These home designs may eventually be constructed on the residential campus by students in the construction and carpentry pathway.

Students, many coming from impoverished backgrounds, are using hands-on STEM skills to design beautiful homes while studying for the Revit certification exam.
