Roadmap for 2020-2025
Thinking Hut v1.0
Hut v1.0 will be used as a prototype to test for design, portability and cost effectiveness. The components themselves will be manufactured from sustainable and eco-friendly materials and utilize architectural scale 3D printers to build the kits in a cost effective and efficient manner. Initial design calls for solar power, Internet access, desks, chairs, tables and other educational resources. The Hut will have a secure door, two ample sized operating windows. The expected occupancy is 15 students and 1 teacher, but the floor configuration may be modified to suit a different number of students. Additionally, the Huts are designed to be added to additional attachable Huts in order to grow the capacity to meet the immediate desired need.
Thinking Huts will put together education resources for a number of subject areas. Thinking Huts believes in the sentiment of giving a “hand up,” not a “handout.” Operating by this as the guiding motto, Thinking Huts will provide communities with the means to create, innovate, and build a life of their own filled with endless opportunity. Working with experts in several fields, Thinking Huts will put together education resources for a number of subject areas, including:
- Health & Awareness
- AIDS Awareness
- Life Skills (farming, sustainable agriculture)
- Advanced & Personalized Learning Options for Students
Think Cloud - Online Learning
An important part of the Thinking Huts learning experience will be the interconnection between various Huts for the exchange of ideas and lessons. Using HTML 5.0 and open source application Thinking Huts will support an Online Portal for students and teachers to access additional resources and work with virtual groups in preparing the students for more involved learning.
Working with education partners around the world Thinking Huts will put together a program to enhance education with the use of seminars, online and offline.
Think Box - Learning Kit
In areas where there is an immediate need and the funding is not immediately available, Thinking Huts will send a Think Boxes to select appropriate destinations based upon Thinking Huts' strategic goals and resources.
Our partnership program will develop synergistic efforts with other nonprofits and companies who share similar values of helping to enrich and positively impact lives.
Thinking Huts will harness the power of awareness to continually inform and involve those who can assist in the greater goals of enrichment through education.
