Oakfield-Alabama Central School continues to innovate around the tech-education curriculum, and today students participated in a project to build a new 3D printer for the school.

The project was part of a class taught by Patti Buczek and Missy Lee.

Half of the students are sitting around with T-shirts on - the other ones are wearing long-sleeve hoodies. Youngsters can be so weird, sometimes.

Awesome job OA students! No matter what you are wearing!

Well, Teri. I'm in Florida. They are in Oakfield. All that was available to me was a short article, and three pictures.

Give me half-an-hour at the local county re-cycling center, and I'll show you a picture of a homemade solar-operated lunar module w/GoPro attached. Doesn't mean it will work.

When I see a video, or read an article about the 3D printer making something, I'll be one of the first to say, "Well done! "

I commented on what caught my attention. Sorry that bothered you so much.

Wow, so as long as they prove to you in a video that it works, they it's ok, but since you have the same article and pictures as we who live in the area have, then they are just weird because of what they are wearing!? These kids work hard every day, thinking things through and making them happen! I for one think it's great to see kids involved in things like this! Please do us all a favor and only comment on pictures involving fashion!

Those kids don't have to prove anything to me, Teri.

I don't know ANY of THOSE kids, so I honestly can't comment on how hard they work, or don't work, every day.

As for what I comment on, please don't hold your breath, waiting for me to comment on fashion only.

I offer no promises, but, I can ALMOST guarantee that I will be commenting on other things.
