Science, Math, and Arts were the skills of students using their SMARTS to design a mini golf course.
At Oxbridge Academy, students are playing miniature golf during school time. However, it is all part of their schoolwork. Over a hundred high school students have been part of a project to design and build a nine hole course while using their SMARTS skills of science, math, and arts.
Designing layouts meant using geometry and the Pythagorean Theorum. They calculated placement of holes and tee pads. Woodshop skills were used, and sculptures as well.
The course includes holes featuring a Hawaiian volcano, a beach and lighthouse, a Dutch Windmill, the Great Wall of China, and the Eiffel Tower.
The students were led by their teachers, and also had the expertise of golf course designer Tom Fazio II, whose daughter attends the school.
