Brave New World? Or Slouching Towards Gomorrah?

I designed this project immediately after I joined the staff to help found Foothill Technology High School in August of 2000. FTHS was created as a project-based school focusing on technology, and every single 9th grader completed this project and thereby signaled a new way of teaching in the “new school in town.” We made the local newspaper with it, and I was co-winner of the Impact II Disseminator Award and Ed Lyon Award for Excellence in Education for this project.

This was one of the highlights of my early career – or my entire career, for that matter. I am still proud of it.
