Scoopy the Pelican Joondalup Primary

Constructed for Joondalup Primary School, Scoopy was an interactive sculpture, which engaged primary school kids with the concept of design an construction. The workshops entailed kids to come together to hone theirs skills with cutting as well as embellishment of materials.

The materials used were recycled and helped inspired young minds to look at waste in a positive light. Once Scoopy had been finished, kids would write well wishes and place them its mouth doubling the sculpture as a post box.
