Yesterday, the 8th Grade Future City class used the SawStop Table Saw to cut the base of their city model boards. I love this saw because if you touch the blade while it is spinning, the mechanisms in the saw will immediately retract and stop the blade; it’s really amazing.
Here are the students cutting their city model bases!
Future City is a project based class, where students research, design, and build a city.
8th grade students spent 4 weeks working with SimCity, and the past 2 working on their research papers. Their primary goal for this year’s Future City competition is to build a city that is senior citizen friendly.
