Baker High School is adding color to its interior walls, beginning with students painting a mural in the science hallway, representing the various sciences.

Jill Nelson, who monitors the computer lab at BHS, said other teachers proposed the mural and students started work on the project last year.

She got together with her class to brainstorm possible ideas for the mural. They had smaller groups who collaborated to get some ideas going. As a large group, they decided on the design.

The mural begins with six scientists painted in the Pop Art theme of Andy Warhol — Amy Mainzer, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Hawking, Bill Nye, Jane Goodall and Michio Kaku.

Nelson said seniors Koedi Birmingham and Morgan Stone worked on the scientists.

The mural moves through the past with woolly mammoths and dinosaurs with a comet flying overhead.

“It’s pretty cool,” said Johnny Zhang, a sophomore and exchange student from China who painted the dinosaurs.

The mural then moves into the present with horses, cows, elk, trout, among other objects. Birmingham said the students wanted to paint animals they can see locally.
