In the past every student would create their own model of their project. Models are expensive and use a lot of paper and foam. Then they get thrown out at the end of the year.
Rather than waste so much money and trees a wood model was started last year. Each year students add more buildings to the model. This year we are using a CNC router to make more intricate buildings for the model.
Not only are we helping the environment with the project we are helping Winnipeg's future. We are creating a learning tool for Winnipeg's future urban planners. When they graduate they will help make Winnipeg a better place to live in.
