Ten years ago: School in the dark

– Better than sitting in the classroom

Seven gingerbread houses were created as part of mathematics for students in health and development, the first time the school has held such a mathematics project. Among the buildings are a theater with musicians and a castle.

Anna Therese Skye (16 years old) told the newspaper that this is much better than sitting in the classroom.

Before baking, students built houses and made models. The area had to be calculated, and separate construction drawings had to be available. Then the baking can begin, and finally the houses must be plastered and decorated.

-Putting the houses together was a bit of a challenge, Skye said.
