Ag PTECH sophomores put their Geometry skills and creativity on display Dec. 4 when they presented their concepts for “quilt barn squares,” each group hoping their design would be one of four selected to be displayed on the exterior of the school.

Before starting their project, Liz Argotsinger, the founder of Fulton Montgomery Quilt Barn Trail explained the story behind the Fulton Montgomery Quilt Barn Trail to the students. She shared with them how she goes about the process of designing and putting together the large-scale pieces that are displayed on barns and buildings throughout Fulton and Montgomery counties.

The students then embarked on making their own quilt pattern designs to represent Ag PTECH, using concepts in Geometry as their guide. Argotsinger was on hand for the presentations of the students’ final designs along with their teacher, Heather Leo, who made sure each design met specific geometry criteria.

Students are voting on all the designs to decide which four will ultimately be displayed outside the school.
