30 SEPTEMBER 2015 SchoolArts took this information to the library and researched what flowers coordi- nated with their birth month, and the national flower for the country their people are from. With this informa- tion in hand, students researched image databases to discover what the pollen and seeds of those flowers look like on a microscopic level. They took note of the ones they felt were most interesting and printed out references. Discovering Materials Students looked at their forms and determined the best materials to use in building their models. They used cardboard, foil, paper, and wire to engineer an armature to be strong enough to hold materials and light enough to remain portable. Students created a labeled x-ray sketch before beginning with the materials. Once this was approved, they set up their work- space and began to gather materials.
