Spencer's Together We Can Reflections Project

Here is Spencer's submission for the PTA's art contest.  He entered the photography category, writing the following:

Together We Can

I created these figures from small discarded components from electronics and computers.

My photos show a group of robots working together to make a community on Mars. The scenes (clockwise from top left) show them: first arriving; taking first steps; building shelter; and meeting to create government. It would take robots with different skills, abilities, and sizes to do the tasks to develop a Martian community.

Our communities also need lots of different people to make them function well. Just like the robots, together we can have strong communities, especially if we understand and value differences.
