I'm a guest again (for the 4th time now!) on the DIY Show a podcast by AV nation for the Maker Community.  The topic of this episode is 3D printing and I talk a little about how 3D printing might make a difference in the STEM classroom, especially for math classes.  Also talk about different printers, software, repositories of objects, copyright and DRM, printed body parts (yes you read that right) and the history and future of 3D printing.  Available streaming from their website at the link below or for download on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/av-week-mp3-edition/id452089049 
What if you could make your own parts to fix a household appliance, or your car from the comfort of your spare room? The growing movement of 3D printing and affordable printers has made this possibili...

Harris Educational was the guest of the EV Challenge this weekend. High School students convert gasoline vehicles into electric vehicles and then compete in a variety of events including written tests, verbal tests, demonstrations of their vehicles, and finally an actual race. Harris Educational is working with the EV Challenge to help design a new troubleshooting simulator that schools can use to teach EV Circuit principles and troubleshooting skills.

I was the guest on this AV Nation (rAVe Pubs) Podcast "The DIY Show", for an episode all about kits, science kits, the history of kits, and the impact of kits on kids, families, and education. I'm really pleased with the results. The podcast is available streaming from their website, or via iTunes.

Reinventing Edison: I just found this video made by a Father and Son about my Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb science kit. Its great to see a father and son doing science projects together, and I love the enthusiasm in the Son's voice.

Its been a busy day today! Harris Educational and the Reinventing Science kits were cited in the Forbes Magazine blog "The Makers" all about the Maker Movement, Make Magazine's Ultimate Kit Guide (we were one of the 12 science kits honored in that edition) and the force that makers can represent to our economy.
Very proud of this accomplishment.
