P.G. School Kids Discover 3-D Printing

“It’s better than just reading something from a textbook,”
You know, some dedication to the industrial arts just might make school interesting. I always liked pounding nails more than pounding in college prep.

For their practice round, students can print one object as long as it adheres to three rules: it has to be useful, school appropriate and small.

William Newsome, 13, printed a saxophone mouthpiece that he was able to use as soon as it was completed. After blowing out some notes, he said it felt better than his regular, hard-rubber mouthpiece.

Adrian Ayala, 14, was thinking about printing a small case. He had never seen a 3-D printer at work before.

“It’s better than just reading something from a textbook,” he said.

Change It To Monterey Regional Water Pollution Creation Agency

“All of the bumps and power surges — sometimes that can throw some of the electronic equipment into chaos,” said McCullough, who noted that shortly after the incident, officials from the agency successfully hooked up another generator to do the pumping that needed to be done.

Fight The Power gull

On Wednesday, the Pacific Grove City Council will discuss bringing back the program to control gulls. With an additional $30,000 in city funding, the proposal will aim to kickstart the effort once again.

“It is prudent to get back on the program,” said Ben Harvey, the Pacific Grove city manager. “You have to do this year in and year out, otherwise the birds just come back.”

Harvey was hesitant to label the gulls as a problem, “We are a coastal community and this is their habitat,” he said. The real problem, he said, is that they skew away from natural behavior. “They are no longer hunting for food, but they are scavenging for garbage.”
