This is Callie’s Coop, a solar-powered tiny house homeless shelter designed by a 5th grader — that cost a whole $10 to build.

Callie designed this micro pod for a school project, and I’ve never seen a 5th grader with so much poise describing her brilliant creation. It includes everything from a solar oven to a rainwater catchment system to a composting toilet. And by using reclaimed materials, she kept the cost down to a meager $10 bill. Now that’s impressive!

She’s just proof that you’re never too young to start changing the world. Go Callie! (And big thanks to RelaxShacks for this video).
