Stuart's teacher, Peter Kalajian of Maine's Watershed School, had this to say about the project:
I work with really fine and interested students at the high school level at a small (28 student) high school in Camden, Maine. We spent an entire semester (5 hours per week) working on this project after about a month of going through your book. I brought the uke to class, so students had to share it to do all the measurements. The idea was to stick with one hard project for the entire semester, collaborate on solutions, and generally stay very focused during class.
Stuart had done some work with SketchUp before, so he got the furthest along. Out of a class of 9 all but two made complete models, some without strings. In general it was a great class.
