A project that we started several years ago with both prep schools. Students design rocks, paint them, apply a 3d bar code, and then write an essay as to why they chose that design. We then photograph every rock with its essay so that when people find them out and about they can scan the bardoce and read their essay as well as let us know where they found the rock.
