DNA studies and archeological research attempt to describe what the young – almost forgotten until discovery – Pharaoh of Egypt looks like. But here is a likely reasonable likeness, standing before you as noble and straight as possible. Along with a scale, illuminated model of what Howard Carter saw when he cracked the seal with Lord Carnarvon’s backing.
What follow is a collection of photos from Science Fairs at Prince Charles elementary school, Surrey (Whalley), BC, Canada, with various annotations. Onwards:
Grade 4, Trolley Transit
I had just transferred from Harold Bishop elementary to Prince Charles shortly before and was determined to “make my mark” and put together this project which foreshadows the ALRT / Skytrain construction in Greater Vancouver (if you look close at the map, you’ll see the proposed line), as well as documents the historical legacy of streetcars (still my fave mode of public transport), and shares some various Buzzer news updates and other transit intell and ephemera. I was awarded 4th place in the grade – while noble i was determined to be on the podium each time thereafter.
Well, i guess Bob was technically rocking the King Tut before my (i’m just gonna say it) legendary King Tut science fair exhibit complete with costume (keep in mind, that was fifth grade science fair and I rolled in bare chested in a loincloth).
Bob however, went for a literal interpretation taking cues from from the conventional death mask portraits of the young Pharaoh (the touring exhibit had been in Seattle this year). I point this out as mine was more historically nuanced accurate for his day-to-day wear.
Dan has graduated to ghost while James plays the role of the clown which he’s never really stopped playing now that I think about it…
