For my capstone, I decided to do a mural which would help the school hallways look better. This project started as an idea in 9th grade and evolved to be what it is today. My partner and I worked together to create a painted wall with flags and the name of the school on top of it. To create the flags, we sent a survey out to the school to collect information concerning the different countries our students are from. We used all of the information and collaborated with our mentor to decide all of the flags that should be included. I tried to find an interesting way of writing our school name that would also fit the style of our school. Through this, I think I got a better understanding of how diverse our school is. This project took a lot of physical work and even more planning but the final product is worth it.
My final project for high school is a mural. This mural is very creative and lights up the hallway. My partner and I decided to work on a mural, we started with 5 mini walls we would do but then decided to do one wall that represents everything. The wall contains flags of the students that go to Science Leadership Academy @ Beeber and the name of the school. We wanted to include the students and their opinions, we started off with surveys for the students which asked for “What country are you from?”. From there we started sketching, my partner and I had different ideas first but we decided that we should combine everything together. While doing this mural, I have seen many students connect with the flags that we put up, they were excited for their flags to be on the wall. Cyrus and I put a lot of hard work on this project, we both went out of our way to get the supplies we need. This mural is my favorite high school project that I spent days and days working on.
