I have a kind of unusual, but nonetheless pretty cool, job. I teach shop teachers how to be shop teachers… specifically I handle some of the electronics, material science and engineering aspects of teaching “shop” class. And that means I introduce my students to VEX, so that they might do the same with their high school students in a year or two.
One of the key things I stress is that you have to stay on top of high school students about putting their VEX parts away, or very soon the school’s custodial staff will be able to build a nicer robot than the students will. Sound familiar to anyone?
So my students have been really, REALLY, good about putting their VEX parts and robots away at the end of class, but one day I found a few shaft collars sitting on the floor! :eek:
I sent out an email to the class, pointing out this egregious oversight, and received the following video response…
British Columbia has some very cool and talented future shop teachers.
