Dedicated to the Revolutions

From the Program: There is a list of seven revolutions from Jacob's grade eight science class. Some of the revolutions changed the tools we use to communicate and share knowledge. Tools can change our behaviour, which can lead to a difficulty in slowing down of taking the time to look around. But we'd like to try that. Having all this time to reflect, though, can make us anxious. Things take a long time, everything changes, nothing is constant and science could end the world. But this anxiety shouldn't prevent us from trying to make our way through, and certainly shouldn't prevent good will and singing.
