DMHS Hay Bale

Phoenix STEM students design and build a radioactive "Hazmat" hay bale art for the Town of Mayodan's "Hayodan" event.

Students working in groups, and without internet connection, came up with unique ideas for hay bale art to be displayed in front of McMichael High School during October and November. After refining ideas the students presented concept drawings and a small mock-up to the class. Students then voted on a winning idea. Many students were involved in the final design, cutting, painting, and installing. The final work in now located at the front of McMichael near NC Highway 135 and will be up until November 21st.
