    • Talked about the idea of creating an object that could teach aobut health – you’d need to feed it with the right stuff or it will get fat or sick for example.

Second half of the class we looked at the wood-working tools, the vinyl cutter (to make stickers), and how to make movable joints and gears with the laser cutter.
