Students at North Springs Charter High’s magnet art and science program recently took part in a project that won first place in an international competition, earning the school a state-of-the-art 3D printer.
The second annual Deconstruction competition encouraged participants to rethink objects and ideas in a live Internet streaming, 48-hour event.
Twenty-five teams – not all composed of students – entered the competition.
The North Springs Laser Sharks team, comprised of 16 students, created a large-scale art machine by turning a lawn mower into what they called a life-sized Etch-A-Sketch.
The project requires two students – one to use a system of pulleys to paint, and another to steer.
