One man’s trash is another man’s Nighthawk
Things are moving right along at Nightingale MS in the D3 Lab these last few weeks. And we’re happy to report the Nighthawk structure is coming to life as the kids continue to add more and more of the repurposed ‘trash’ each time we meet.
These days, the TRASHformers waste no time getting right to business, each taking on a different role to help construct the Nighthawk. There is plenty to do in the lab, between cutting out cardboard tubes for the wings, folding chip bags for the tail feathers, or painting bicycle rims to add to our wings. The students love all the hands-on activity, and find it rewarding to watch the Nighthawk take form. It’s been great too, to see all the familiar faces of the kids involved from the beginning and now new students joining in the action to help us build.
It won’t be long before the structure is complete and we are ready to move the Nighthawk to his new home, overlooking the school’s blacktop and proudly displayed for everyone to see.
