PechaKucha in the Classroom
At Tokyo's Vol. 100, held back in February of this year, a school teacher named Tomoko Koda was in attendance, and loved the presentation "The World's Best City When It Rains" by Jesper Larsson so much that she contacted him afterwards, asking if he could come to the school where she works (KAIS) to do a workshop with her students based on that presentation. He couldn't make it before leaving the country (he was in town on a visit), but he encouraged them to do it anyway. And so they did. We later contacted Tomoko, and she had this to say: "It was our first attempt to have a PechaKucha event at our school, and the students exceeded my expectation -- it was a huge success! Everyone talked about what they are passionate about (skateboard, basketball, computer games), their new ideas (new style of alarm clocks, creative game to get a seat on a crowded train), and new perspectives (see the positive side of moving, online activities). Students got to learn their friends' ideas and shared opinions. We had so much fun and hope to have it every year!" We've invited Tomoko to come present at one of our upcoming PKNs in Tokyo, and we can't wait to hear her talk about this experience of using the PK format with her students.

In "Clean Water for Life" from PKN Vancouver Vol. 28, Bradley goes into depth on his research and a prototype filter he's made while performing outreach in countries all over.
Aliens Might Have Claimed My Sisters
"The love of the process isnt about solving, but about the asking. It's taking your agenda out of the picture and seeing what there is to be discovered."

In "Aliens Might Have Claimed My Sisters" from PKN Chicago Vol. 29 Leah shows us her passion for creation, and how that passion started out with metal working, and has led her to ceramics.
