Making Mechanical Boxes

Lotspeich fourth-graders recently constructed mechanical boxes in Jody Knoop’s art class. Knoop said the project is a robust blend of varied artistic skills, including mechanics, motion, digital application, hand molding, and design.Each student selected a theme for their 5x5x4-inch boxes, including Harry Potter, space, flames, and unicorns, to name a few. The students also used the computer application Kaleidopaint to design their own wallpaper for the boxes.
