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.

Monster Makers

From the Program: Monster Makers is an interactive adventure for children. Monster Makers was conceived in Navi Mumbai in collaboration with Shobha Murthy's students of Aarambh (www.aarambh.org). Aarambh is a non-profit charity organization based in the slum colonies of Navi Mumbai, India and was created as a support center for the children and women living there. Monster Makers is dedicated to the students and their anarchic spirit.
