We did a Squirrel-O-Rama Wednesday.
There has been a lot of hype about 3D printers in media over the past while. Of course the Squirrel Project has a couple of 3D printers so was invited to the Ottawa 3D Print-A-Thon. The event was very successful. I presented the idea of using 3D printers to perfect the propellers. Of course many fans of the Squirrel Project showed up and a couple of keen kids made a couple planes. I cooked up a Dayton myself.
Picnic season is here! If your floating around Ottawa and are looking for something that’s frugal and fun (not to mention educational), why not make some rubber-power planes with the kids? We will wave delivery charges locally and you can have them very quickly. As you can see below I am using my bike to deliver them myself. I can show you how to make them too.
I was invited to help kids make some Squirrels at a school.
My contact Robert had an innovative idea of using an overhead projector and a camera so the kids could see the steps close up. This is a brilliant idea and is much better than the way I was doing it. I think with some refinement this could be the ultimate technique.
As you can see below, it was a large group!
I had the priveledge of being interviewed by Kathleen Petty at the studio on Queen Street in Ottawa. What a great experience.
The youtube below is taken right from the radio so there’s only a slideshow and no real images (welcome to radio), so I put in a slideshow from Squirrel-O-Rama and other events.
