Exploris Design-Build “Exploration” #2

Here we are a year later teaching another school “exploration” at Exploris Elementary School. After building models and working with plaster for a few weeks we took our class outside and built a sculpture in the school yard. We assembled a frame that was then coated with concrete. Thanks to the students for all the hard work, Ann Whitehurst and all the other volunteers for helping, and to the Exploris School for letting the students get dirty doing this hands-on exercise.
