Working sculpturally, students create an immense variety of artworks. Ceramics has been a favorite medium, however we have worked in materials as diverse as circuit boards, cardboard, and earthworks. The Gatobot, an AP 3-D kinetic sculpture by student Rhiannon Johnson was the Editor’s Choice at the Maker Faire Bay Area and was enjoyed by over 200,000 people over two years. It appeared in the national magazine Make: in the November 2016 issue. The AP class worked with Benicia High School’s Robotics Team to bring this to life.
