METUCHEN — Loren Schnitzer, who is a project manager for a company that provides professional technical services and mother of sixth grade student Cole, shared her expertise with a group of sixth grade Edgar Middle School students through a presentation regarding the use of scale rulers with architectural plans. The presentation included an overview of a new educational building with phased construction photographs. The students then used architectural plans to scale the dimensions of walls that will have actual murals installed on them in the future. Students were instructed in the use of scale rulers and reading construction plans. Through a grant from the Metuchen Education Foundation, math teacher Mrs. Vorensky and art teacher Mrs. Gumbrecht have been collaborating with a group of sixth and eighth grade students on creating a hall mural at Edgar School that applies the knowledge of scale and proportion.
