Buitenklas - build your own open air classroom.

How can we get kids safely back to school? We can do it with Buitenklas.

We’re living through extraordinary times full of uncertainty and anxiety. Getting kids back to school in the safest possible way can make a world of difference in our collective quality of life.

Shtick and Bump, two Belgian design studios, put their heads together to make it easier for teachers and parents to take school outside with Buitenklas, a simple open air classroom that anyone can make.

    any outdoor space into a safe learning environment.
  2. How can we get kids safely back to school? We

    can do it with Buitenklas. We’re living through extraordinary times full of uncertainty and anxiety. Getting kids back to school in the safest possible way can make a world of difference in our collective quality of life. Shtick and Bump, two Belgian design studios, put their heads together to make it easier for teachers and parents to take school outside with Buitenklas, a simple open air classroom that anyone can make.

  3. Included in every Buitenklas design: — Room for up to

    20 kids, with enough space for a desk, chair or yoga mat. — 2m2 clearly marked for every student. — Clearly marked routes around and through the classroom to allow the teacher to safely interact with students on an individual basis. — Ideas for how to make the most of Buitenklas by creating formats for individual study, group or partner work and a theater style.
  4. The building blocks of Buitenklas are 2x2m squares. — You

    can also choose to assign each student a number of symbol. 2m × 2m 2m × 2m
  5. Stap 1: Begin met een grid die past in jouw

    ruimte. 1m 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 2 3 4 7 8 9 12 13 14 17 18 1 6 11 16 19 5 10 15 20 1m 1m 1m 1m 1m 1m 1m 1m 1m 0,5m 0,5m 0,5m 0,5m 0,5m 0,5m 11,5m 12,5m 14m 15m 10,5m 11,5m 1m 1m 0,5m 0,5m 0,5m 10,5m 11,5m Step 1: Choose a grid that fits in your space.
  6. Elke grid heeft twee routes tussen de leerlingen en een

    veilige perimeter rond de klas. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 Routes through the class to allow the teacher to interact with individual students. Teacher perimeter. Every grid has a safe perimeter and two routes through the classroom.
  7. Step 2: Choose a building material. — Want to test

    Buitenklas for a day? Will the class be moved from one location to another? Use some plain old chalk. — Looking for a one-week solution that’s a bit sharper? Make a stencil and use spray chalk. — Are you convinced that Buitenklas works for you and you want to keep it visible for as long as possible? Tape is a decent option, but using a stencil and paint will keep it looking fresh longer. — Another (more expensive) option: printed carpet tiles. Grab your chosen material and your tape measure, and you’re ready to start building.

    communal desks and chairs? Together, we can make it happen.
