051: Living On The Edge of Chaos – Don’t Compare Yourself

In this episode I share an insight I gained while running bright and early one morning last week prior to the grand opening. It is an important lesson for all of us to remember as I am sure at some point we have compared ourselves to others.

Don’t do it.

Let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear from you.

Coffeechug Catapult 1.0 Crowdsource Maker Challenge

This video is a challenge to see how to make Coffeechug Catapult 1.0 even better for version 2.0

The goal here is to promote thinking, problem solving, prototyping, and experimenting within the makerspaces to enhance our learning. I thought it would be fun to crowdsource the journey and discover how others would solve the problem.

Feel free to share with your students and classes the challenge and look forward to the comments for me to test out in the next prototype.

212 STEAM Labs Is Ready!

I cannot believe this is happening. I have been working like crazy in all my free time at night and weekends to bring to life a vision for STEAM education that I have had for many years. After being inspired by the students I have worked with over the years who have taken a leap to reach their goals and dreams I realized that I need to do the same. Just because I am balding and getting older doesn’t mean I cannot leap as well.

With much support from so many people who have kept me going and not giving up on this vision when it has proven difficult, I am happy to announce the grand opening event of 212 STEAM Labs.

I hope you come visit. Come see the space and learn what we have to offer. I still have much to do, but the date is set and we are ready to be one degree of separation that pushes our learning to the next level.

047: Living On The Edge of Chaos – Fear and Excitement are Confusing

In this episode I am sharing a big learning moment I have had as I attempt to launch a non-profit STEAM Innovation Hub called 212 STEAM Labs.

In this particular episode I am finally able to announce that we are actually moving into the space. The dream is becoming an official reality and it makes me sweat a bit as reality is setting in for my vision.

  1. When doors don’t open, all is safe and not risky
  2. Open doors means you have to put your money where your mouth is!
  3. Fear and Excitement – when these emotions catch you off guard!

Let me know what you think. How does this connect to your life and your thoughts? What questions do you have? What do you think about sharing the behind the scenes podcast episodes?

046: Living on the Edge of Chaos – Wishy Washy

In this episode I am sharing another learning moment I have had as I attempt to launch a non-profit STEAM Innovation Hub called 212 STEAM Labs.

In this particular episode I was working to learn how to speak in business meetings and make sure that the communication between both sides are clear to avoid any misunderstandings. I learned this the hard way in a few meetings I was part of as I was trying to figure things out.

  1. Wishy Washy is a form of communication in education
  2. Business world has no time for wishy washy as you will get ignored
  3. Clear and effective communication starts with a vision and bit of confidence

Let me know what you think. How does this connect to your life and your thoughts? What questions do you have? What do you think about sharing the behind the scenes podcast episodes?
