At the Prairie Creek Community School, a K-5, tuition-free, public charter school located in Northfield, Minnesota, the Covid-19 pandemic created a unique problem: how to provide a platform for students to use for computer and other schoolwork in a socially-distanced, outdoor setting. It was also an opportunity to reevaluate children’s screen time usage and to create something new. The school teamed up with local designer Eastvold Furniture to create 180 Big Sky Desks, an innovative piece of furniture students can use for campfires, internet searches, and everything in between.
