PLANET PROJECT
Science + Art
Each year, an interactive learning project is developed to diversify teaching methods, strike the classroom with creativity and expand on students’ awareness for science, art, the environment, and material usage. These projects explore a new theme each year.  Students use their research to build a collaborative model, or sculpture. This year we delve into the vast species of MOTHS.

2018 Planet Project : “MOTHS”
The objective of this year’s Planet Project Sculpture begins with the consideration of Moths, and developing an understanding of their habitat, physical characteristics, environmental impacts and species diversity. Moth anatomy will be examined to determine characteristics, adaptations, and geographical habitat. Studying the moth’s habitat will help illuminate the different jobs that each moth performs for their relative ecosystem, as well as the influences that effect the diminishing moth population, ex. by pesticides. Students will be amazed by the Moth’s symmetrical patterns, vibrant colors and the functions associated with varied coatings. Subsequently, classes will work together to design a moth and related installation to exhibit at the Moss Rock Festival.
