This is a newspaper clipping about a Steelpan project I entered into the local science fair in Grahamstown when I was still in high school, most likely in 1984. I still have the pan in the photo, which I must have made in early 1984 or late 1983. It is an Invader layout which is all that I knew about at that time. The concept of the separate ellipses was something I was convinced would work, although at that time I did not have enough experience to benefit from it. This was about the 6th or 7th pan I made.
