I was invited to attend a small get together at a school with some Squirrels. It was a lot of FUN!
I took the opportunity to test some foam experiments as well as get some Squirrel kits out into the wild.
I was very pleased that I actually had fans. I had parents and children come up to me that had been in Squirrel workshops from the city library, cubs and scouts, schools and more.
I encourage my model airplane friends across the world: Get a small batch of planes together and share them with the general public. It’s fun and makes a difference.
What was learned:
-One good way of taking video and launching a plane is to have the camera round your neck.
-Kids don’t get what it is unless you physically demonstrate it.
-Kids don’t like making things. We need to make things easy. Or this art will disappear. Easy wins.
