So many ways to think about Photo essay: The bizarre, brilliant and useful inventions of Cuban DIY engineers | PBS NewsHour.
Silly: I need to go to Cuba so I can be a better Design Teacher.
Twee: Cuba is a Maker Space!
Cliché: Necessity is the mother of invention.
Pedagogical: You want authentic projects? MYP Design provides a road map and this photo essay provides the inspiration, now add time and encouragement.
Realistic: Add work space to the above note. Space is always a consideration in Hong Kong.
Honest: I want to go curb shopping right now and build something.
Political: (No thanks. Read the comments on PBS.org if you want that.)
Challenged: I spend far too much on things, and throw away far too many things that could be repurposed.
