I used to be a school teacher, so this is the idea that came into my head for the St. Patrick's Day category for the MocAthalon. This is a science classroom, and the teacher decided to have a little St. Patrick's Day party for the students. She decorated around the blackboard, brought in a bouquet of green carnations, and served up some yummy, green-frosted cupcakes. Little Thomas got a bit too much into the spirit of the day, and decided to go around pinching everybody who wasn't wearing green. He didn't have the guts to pinch his teacher, but went for his classmate Emily instead. Now she's crying, her friend Jessica is trying to comfort her, Thomas is wearing the dunce's cap and standing in the corner, and Mathew thinks he is going to get to eat all the cupcakes by himself.
And in case you're feeing sorry for Thomas, you should know that he let one of the class' two pet frogs loose. He really does deserve to be standing in a corner with a dunce's hat on. ;-)
Here's Mathew, thinking that maybe he has the luck of the Irish after all:
Here's a view of the classroom, showing the clock and the intercom for school announcements next to it; the computer with its keyboard, mouse, and monitor, on which you can see some of what the students are learning about frogs; the microscope with a basket of crystals for the students to observe; portraits of two famous scientists (GaliLEGO and LEGOnardo da Vinci, in their younger years); and the sink, with its soap, scrub brush, and spray bottle for the frogs and plants.
And finally, here is a view of the far wall, showing both frogs (only one still safely in the tank), the class' plant-growing project (some sprouts having grown up a bit higher than others), various chemicals used in experiments, and a frazzled teacher. Is it any wonder that her hair is turning gray?
This is great. The little details really give the feel of a classroom. I am especially fond of the frog food jar, and the St. Patrick's Day decor on the black board. I also like how you opted for slightly larger than minifig scale. It works well and reinforces the classroom atmosphere. Great job!
