SANDY — An Easter egg design created by a team of 10 students from Beehive Science and Technology Academy will represent the state at the White House Easter Egg Roll Monday in Washington.
In March, the charter school for grades six through 12 was asked by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sydnee Dickson if it would represent Utah by designing the egg. According to the criteria from the U.S. Department of Education, participating schools in the project would ideally be centered on a curriculum of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.Comment on this story
The design required the background be done in gold, red, pink, blue, green or white. In addition, the design had to be emblematic of the state. The school’s design includes images of Delicate Arch, a skier, a seagull and a honeycomb pattern.
The students who worked on the project are Jamison Wayman, Heather Cloward, Aliah Tedjamulia, Isaac Wilcoxon, Asim Kablan, Elnura Kibarova, Hayden Ure, Michael Mertens, Zaya Harker and Aiden Pasinsky.
The White House Egg Roll dates back to 1878 under the administration of President Rutherford B. Hayes.
