    " organic brains are gross" and mechanical brains are shiny and bright spoken like a mechanical engineering geek from the 19th century. The future of engineering is proceeding towards the organic. In 1895 Marie Curie commented on the extraordinary power in a gram of Radium. Fifty years later we had nuclear power. In 1995 the human genome was mapped. The future is programmed growth.

    Many thanks for these videos – they really do enrich the quality of the learning in all my lessons and I’m hoping that they’ll catch on around the world.

    FYI – I’ve set my students 3 huge challenges at the highest level to stimulate their innovative thought and ideas and our proposals for each will appear on ProjectBoard within the next few weeks:

    1. How can we massively improve the embedding of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals into all learning? – our Flywheel-based energy storage system proposal already on ProjectBoard is part of that.

    2. How can we advance scientific thought as it seems to have hit the buffers at the moment – why can scientists only account for 5% of the observable universe – we at the Technology centre have a new paradigm to offer but it’s really ‘out there’!

    3. How can we improve the failings of education as so eloquently expressed by Sir Ken Robinson in his TED videos – we have developed a new strategy focussing on student-led enhancement of their own learning – btw if you have a contact with Sir Ken can you please ask him to contact us here at Exeter College UK, Technology Centre?

    Keep up the great work – Richard Masters (University Level Learning Leader).
