Teaching and tinkering, teaching to tinker

Tonight, if it works out, or some other Monday  Pasta night, I will be visiting with Professor Alex Slocum of MIT. I had not quite met him at the Furniture Society Conference this summer, but wanted to, after hearing him talk very briefly about the hands. You can learn a bit about him from this site. The photo shows him explaining a method for storing energy on the seafloor to President Obama.

The photo below shows one of Professor Slocum's woodworking projects. You can see Alex at work at

Today in the Clear Spring School wood shop, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students will begin working on our annual toy making project, and the 10th, 11th and 12th grade students will continue work on their fabric boxes.
