A Tumbleweed-Inspired Minesweeper: Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani

A Tumbleweed-Inspired Minesweeper: Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani | Sustainable Education | Scoop.it

"Designer Massoud Hassani hails from Qasaba, Kabul, amid a landscape ravaged and weaponized by landmines that still lurk in off-limits regions. Although the "Mine Kafon" dates back to 2011, when he presented it as his graduation project at Design Academy Eindhoven, the lo-fi de-miner was recently the subject of a short film by Focus Forward Films. Like Theo Janssen's Strandbeests, the Mine Kafon moves with the wind; however, it's more like a tumbleweed or a clump of dandelion seeds than zephyr-powered locomotion."

Eco Kids Learn about Sustainability

Eco Kids Learn about Sustainability | Sustainable Education | Scoop.it

The Eco Kids have gotten presetations on Sustainability and Solid Waste Management while having a great time at their Summer camp.

 

"After finishing touches were put on the bracelets, campers lined up and marched to the Chaa Creek conference room, where Mr. Brion Young gave a presentation on the various ways to use environmentally friendly practices in everyday life.  Mr. Young highlighted several of the ways in which Chaa Creek recycles, such as using old cardboard boxes as mulch at the Maya Organic Farm, as well as giving campers advice on recycling at home."
