High school students from American School of Bilbao (ESP), The Calverton School (USA), Alexander Pushkin School (RUS), St. Catherines Moorlands School (ARG) teamed up with our instructors to design and build a bird house/feeder. Teams were given a choice of materials to choose from cardboard tubes, mesh, acrylic sheets, or plastic bottles, and basswood. The students had less than 4 hours to come up with a concept, build prototypes, and create the final product. Despite the limited time, all teams managed to finish on time, followed by a presentation and critique session. Scroll down to see the top 3 winning teams.
Special thanks to our volunteer instructors, CAS Trips, and ARCHIP for contributing to another successful workshop!
