The class was tasked with building a survival shelter, also called a debris hut.

It was built to the size of one of the students in the class. They built a triangular wooden frame structure and covered it with leaves.  For them to pass the test the individual who it was built for had to be inside and a classmate had to  stand on top of it without it collapsing.  It also needed to be able to withstand 5 gallons of water being poured on it.
