CASPER, Wyo., March 12 (UPI) -- Students at a Wyoming high school put their geometry lessons into action by constructing a human-powered giant foosball table.
The students from Roosevelt High School in Casper put their math skills to the test by constructing the life-size foosball table with help from the Transitions Learning Center.
"Nobody asks why do we need to know this. You can see why we need to know it and today was a great example just trying to line up the size, the lengths of the boards," Transitions Learning Center math teacher Dwight Burrows told KCWY-TV.
A similar table was constructed recently in St. Louis, Mo., by foosball enthusiasts who organized the Great American Human Foosball league for locals.
