Are we only listening to a single story?

Reflecting on Literature and how we form our views of the world, people and places. I came across this fabulous TED talk from Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Sometimes it is worth spending 16 minutes to listen to a great story.

Is my Castle Ready Yet?

Not a phrase I have used often, well never really! I suppose Kate asks Wills
every so often. This is my castle printed on the new 3D printer. Admittedly, I did not draw this on Sketch up but I will be attempting to next week. I am working with a Yr 9 History class and the best three castles will be printed on the 3D printer.

I have been amazed by this new technology after watching this incredible TED talk where Anthony Atala talks about and demonstrates printing a human kidney.
The video below also shows how 3D printing can  transform lives. This is a great story about problem solving enabled by new technology

I shall just get back to the Sketch up tutorial.
