RepRap Goes To School
The boys & girls of Mrs Cornwell's class at Oratia School in Waitakere were kind enough to invite me along today to help with their topic of inventors and inventions. Hello room 16! I took the RepRap Child along for its first day at school, and we made a Mighty RepRap Power Ring. I left them with lots of small samples, some Polymorph to create their own inventions with, and a Christmas Angel to put on their Christmas tree. I'm sure I spotted one or two budding inventors and inventrixes there!
I remember when scientists and inventors would stop and visit my elementary school classroom like that. It didn't happen often, but when it did... I owe so much of my current passion for science and invention to those days!Post a Comment
