Two weeks ago marked the completion of Kooscie The Dragon, a creation of the Child Development Centre‘s Before and After School Care, at Kildala School. Which runs from 7-9 and 3-6.
The dragon is constructed of papier-mâché, wire mesh and 2880 pop can tabs.
The idea came from a course Diane Thiessen, who supervised the construction, took at Kitimat Valley Institute. During this course, she noticed the Dragon in the Rio Tinto Alcan Display Case and Came up with the idea. The students voted on whether or not they wanted to build a dragon or build a fish.
In the meantime, Kooscie is on it’s way to the Kitimat Museum where it will be on display as a part of the Museum in the Classroom Exhibit which opened on Friday. If you get a chance to see the dragon there, look for some of the unique tabs used from different brands of Energy Drinks. There are 8 special tabs in all.
