22,000 toothpicks create a cat picture

A high school in the Chiba Prefecture of Japan created a large picture (sculpture?) of the head of a white cat using 22,000 toothpicks.

It was a large undertaking which took 5 months of work and a scientific and well organised approach. It works well.

What did the students learn from this exercise? Well, I can’t discover the official answer to that question. Teamwork must be an important part of the project. Learning design skills and visualisation must also be in the mix. And I guess you’d learn a bit about the anatomy of the domestic cat. I would also mean really looking at the subject matter and seeing the shadows and highlights etc..

It is nice that they decided to represent a cat.

Where is Chiba Prefecture?
