My wife was given the opportunity to pre-screen an Education Documentary on project based learning. The video was focused on High Tech High (where was this place when I was a kid!). At one point while she was watching the video, she called me over to see something. A group of kids in the school’s GritLab were working on their final project, much of which was laser cut. The video has not been made public, so I can’t share that here yet. I did however manage to find the specific project on GritLab’s website: http://gritlab.org/apocalypto-project-summary/

Very cool stuff and worth some exploration!
