On Friday, March 25, the AP Calculus class participated in the Canstruction event at the University of Memphis.
The goal for the calculus class was to build a "Gar-CAN-tous melon," and that is exactly what they did. They built a seven-and-a-half foot watermelon slice on a picnic blanket.
The calculus class had collected 2,054 cans to build their watermelon. The watermelon won the award "Best Use of Labels" by paying close attention to all the details, and even including seeds in the watermelon. All of the food will be donated to the Mid-South Food Bank. The structures will remain up in the lobby of the engineering building until the end of the week.
