A great week spending time with those younger than us.
Bob and I each had our second interview with the Furman students who are in a class studying aging. This week the questions were about our experience and perceptions of health issue. Good interviews and getting to know the students better.
Yesterday Bob went out to Dorman to work with his three junior boys on drones. He has them researching the rules and laws of drone flying and also they get to improve their flying skills on his two quadcopters. He says they get REALLY excited doing their flying. In early October Bob has Upstate Aerial coming out to demonstrate large drones at the track. They do commercial aerial photography with their drones. Pretty exciting.
While he was doing that I was in Travelers Rest for the first 3D printing club at the middle school with 16 seventh and eighth graders. I did show and tell, history and future of 3D printing, materials and answered LOTS of good questions. I think I helped the teacher quite a bit.
Today a very interesting meeting with Jessica. It’s been 43 years since I graduated from Mankato State and she is a fellow graduate that contacted me and moved to Greenville a few months ago. Only alumni that has ever contacted me, if you don’t count the ones that want money! Turns out in her new job she needs to redo the company website and asked me for my advice. What a small world. She is a very articulate, personable, bright and ambitious young lady. It was a great pleasure to spend a couple hours with her today teaching her the web development program weebly.com.
I have great hope for our future if there are lots more people as talented as these are.
