Cannon Elementary School’s halls are lined with cardboard boxes.
But it’s not a big-campus wide move, instead kindergarten through fifth graders made creations out of the storage material and showcased their work at the school’s first Cannon’s Carboard Creations Challenge.
About 200 works were on display as classes walked the halls to see the pieces and interact with some of the hands-on pieces. There were a few haunted houses, doll houses, and laptops. Some children made interactive games like foosball, skeeball and Price Is Right favorite Plinko.
Cannon is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics focused school so the children learn the design process all year.
Principal Tona Blizzard said she though this program would be a good way for the students to practice those lessons.
