Home of the Atom Smashers

You need to drive into the front of the school to see the sculpture.

[Carolyn Earle, 02/27/2015]

The sculpture stands off the road, close to the school building, shielded from rogue atomic particles and wayward traffic. The severed arms are poised to to perform serious atom smashing.

"Home of the Atom Smashers" Sculpture

Definitely odd, "low-tech" sculpture...makes for a great high school icon!

"Home of the Atom Smashers" Sculpture

Sculpture stands right in front of the school in the bus circle.

[Wendy, 07/05/2011]

A gift from the Sol C. Johnson High School class of 1962 commemorating the team name. The "Home of the Atom Smashers" sculpture is a brick pedestal featuring an arm clutching a hammer, about to strike a spike held by another arm and drive it into an atom -- hoops arrayed with orbiting electrons. The school gym is called the "Reaction Chamber."
