Koblenz: the 'spitting boy' statue

One class decided to design a trick fountain in their Design and Technology lessons.

They wanted to make it so that it would surprise passers-by by suddenly spurting out water.

They also found out about the history of the 'spitting boy' statue in Koblenz. It celebrated the story of German boys who were cheeky to French soldiers when they occupied Koblenz and most of Germany at the time of Napoleon. They would throw jugs of water over them (and worse!) in the street, and run away.

Koblenz: spitting boy statue
You can't predict when this statue will suddenly spurt out a jet of water...
