The Workshop School

The mission of The Workshop School is to unleash the creative and intellectual potential
of young people to solve the world’s toughest problems. For 30 ninth grade students in 2017, the tough problem was how to build a human-powered vehicle that could complete a two-mile course and survive a series of obstacles, including a mud pit. The Workshop School won $4,000 grant from Philadelphia Federal Credit Union (PFCU)  as part of PFCU's sponsorship of the annual Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby & Arts Festival this past summer.
