  • Shawsheen Tech Scores Big at the Eco-Carpentry Challenge in Boston

    The Hogwarts Express seemed to race out of a tunnel. The Harry Potter-themed bedroom unit was created by students at Shawsheen Valley Technical High School -- out of a pile of junk. Shawsheen Tech won the People’s Choice Award on May 2 during the Furniture Trust’s Eco-Carpentry Challenge. The Furniture Trust provided each school with a suite of used office furniture and excess building materials, otherwise bound for the landfill. Students from the carpentry, metal fabrication, auto body, business technology and marketing, graphic communication, and design and visual communications collaborated to develop the theme and create the different components of the bedroom set, all of which had to fit in a 10’ by 10’ exhibition space.” “I thought, what are we going to do with everything, this doesn’t make sense. We got a big pile of stuff,” said James DeFeo, 10th grade carpentry student.
