A Post-It Post

Two day into the school year, and I feel good! Well, actually right now I feel exhausted, but it's that good "I-did-something-to-deserve-feeling-exhausted" exhaustion.

My room looks awesome! I have both floor and ceiling tiles -- woohoo! Although I do question the decision to put my ceiling mounted projector directly below a sprinkler. But I guess it's a good example to point out to my design students when we discuss poor planning. :)

We're working with adhesives tomorrow in Engineering class. Part of this lesson involves talking about how Post-It notes were invented. I tried to find a video about the creation of Post-It notes on YouTube. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I did find this. Enjoy the cheeze-tasticness.



And I will leave you with a fun fact: most of the world's Post-It notes are manufactured in my town.
