Science Meets Art. It's Time to Shop
Science Lessons.  

Every snowflake is unique. No two are the same. When did you hear it? Kindergarten? First grade? Did you believe it? Did you use those blunt nose scissors to create your own snowflakes? Geez. Do little kids still use scissors in this age of infants with iPads?   
If mother nature can create unique snowflakes, can we?
That's the question Brandon Klevence posed to a group of Workshop Industries entrepreneurs and makers this summer. 

The discussion began last spring with senior Workshop Industries member Aaron Jeffers. "We needed new products. It started us thinking," he explained.  The first item they created were delicate spider web earrings with bending lines. Looking at those led to the creation of the even more intricate snowflakes. This summer students brought the snowflakes to life. Several students learned the software program Processing which enabled them to create these beautiful pieces. Tylik Creamer and Erik Beatty wrote the computer code. But, that's just the beginning.

The production is a many step process with Nathaniel Carr and Elijah Lewis refining and checking each item as it goes from Processing, to Inkscape, another software program, to the laser cutter. Then there are a team of painters and assemblers. The sale and distribution of all the Workshop Industries products involves even more students who design and update the website, reach out to customers, process orders, ship packages, and attend area craft fairs. Their hard work pays off in income for students and funding for new supplies and projects.  We appreciate your patronage!

Reason #1. We're awesome. We build boats and bridges. We make music and movies. We fix up cars and donate them to people who need them. We design Escape Rooms. We take on massive problems like food justice and mass incarceration. And we create a school kids want to attend and are proud of.
