Hacking Autism: Schuyler on 3D Printing

This is Schuyler St. Leger who along with his father Jim serves as the subject of my post called “Hacking Autism: St. Leger’s Give Voice To Autism“.

Here is the section of the article discussing 3D printers:

The ABC7 story actually has footage of Schuyler and I talking at lunch.  I was doing the listening, because Schuyler was giving me a tutorial on the construction and production of 3D printers.  In fact, he pulled a whistle out of his pocket produced by his very own 3D printer…a real whistle.

Throughout the lunch I was in awe (Shuyler is 11 year’s old!).  Afterward, I walked over to Jim, who happens to work at Intel.  I jokingly questioned Jim about Intel hiring the wrong St. Leger (forgive me again Jim).  The look on his face, lead me to believe this was not the first time the subject had been broached (hopefully not by his bosses).

About Russ Ewell

Since 1994 I have been devoted to the research and application of innovative technology solutions to education. My passion for these pursuits has been driven by my experience as a parent of children with special needs. During the economic technological growth explosion of the 1990's I was lived and worked in Silicon Valley, and was fortunate enough to find a group of people with similar interests and passions. As a result I was able to launch a non-profit called Hope Technology Group whose mission became advancing the use of technology in education. We eventually launched Hope Technology School, which has used technology to build a fascinating and effective educational program that practices full inclusion. Around the same time, I was fortunate enough to develop and build an awarding winning program called E-Soccer with the help of great friends and excellent coaches. These endeavors have left me with a continuing hunger to learn more about the possibilites of education, technology, and inclusion.
