Ivywild School: Boys Restroom math and science

This mural was painted in the Ivywild School Boys Restroom in 1991 by Marilyn Lane-Eggleston in response to the principal attending a district science conference. On returning the principle said, “The instructor said we need to teach more science even if we paint it on the bathroom walls.” Marilyn solicited ideas from all the teachers about what subjects should be on the wall and so today in the boys and girls restrooms there are murals on the walls depicting dinosaurs, the major food groups, multiplication tables, basic anatomy, etc. “The one thing we did notice,” Marilyn said, commenting on the boys restroom, “after this went up, there was minimal graffiti.” See below for additional photos.
