Second graders are shown with their paper weaving projects. Students measured and cut half-sheets of cardstock to create a loom for weaving color patterns with 1/2-inch x 5 1/2-inch strips of colored paper. This project served to reinforce 2nd grade math content involving measurements.
The plant cell pillow by 6th grader Lana Schemerhorn is part of an interdisciplinary science-related project. Pillow sculptures by sixth graders Allison Blum, Ellie Grace Garner, Emily McMinn, Cooper Worthington, and 8th grader Brinn Skalak are personally creative expressions in the medium of sewing and cloth sculpture. Works by Nyla Makanangot and Athena Workman are explorations into historical fashion design and human figure drawing. The watercolor by 7th grader Sevvy Ludwig effectively creates the illusion of the deep space of a landscape.
The Tinkercad model of Tryon Palace by 7th grader Sal Infinito demonstrates the successful manipulation of simple shapes to create a complex and accurate virtual model. Tryon Palace was the first permanent capitol of the colony of North Carolina. This 7th grade computer-aided design project was part of an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Art Tech and Social Studies classes. Students used photos of their computer-aided design models to illustrate research papers in Mr. Thomas's class.
Eighth grader Arturo Saucedo-Trinidad created his Vanadium Atom video for an assignment that was a collaboration of the middle school Art Tech and Science classes. For the Atom Video project, students creatively combined art, science, math, and engineering. Students built virtual 3D Bohr models of atoms with the Tinkercad computer-aided design app. Students used their atom models in videos, which provide information about elements the eighth graders are researching in science class.
