Grab your hammer and your imagination and head to Shop Class. In the new Disney+ series, teams of two kids work with a teacher to build something. Their creations are judged by experts, including architects and interior designers.
Erik Shamsedeen, 12 (third from right), appears in one episode. Erik and his partner, Hailey, were tasked with creating a hole for a miniature golf course. “We were given these surprise items: wood boards, fake grass, and a mechanical spinning wheel,” Erik told TIME for Kids. “We had to incorporate all the pieces.” Erik says the experience allowed him to make friends and collaborate. “I think kids will enjoy watching Shop Class because they will see the creativity and be inspired,” he says.
