Man Versus Machine (STEM Everday #22)

image-4Back in the day it was a big deal to to many to receive the Sears and Roebuck catalog, or as some may have referred to it as ‘the wish book’. Not just being able to order out of the book was special, the fact that the product that was ordered was delivered in the rural areas free of charge.  

Well now, could Ebay be the new wish book?

Join Chris Woods to hear how the new modern machines, or technology, may or may not be creating new things.  Chris will give ways that you can help your students not only to think of how to make the old new, but to think and create totally new items from original ideas.
