8th Graders Construct Residential Structures

On Thursday February 5th, John Bannister-Marx’s eighth grade engineering class worked on constructing miniature residential homes. The students designed a bird’s eye view of the interior of the one floor home any way they liked, but they had to scale sizes down to being able to fit on a one 1×1’ piece of cardboard.
