Learning geometry is as easy as playing a game
Crafty Cut, from Preloaded, aims to solve the challenges of learning geometry. It presents students with an imaginatively designed game that teaches the conceptual underpinning of geometry by relating flat 2-D representations of various shapes to the 3-D world. To accomplish this, Crafty Cut: (1) does not require a pre-requisite in algebra or even arithmetic, (2) is a game that students enjoy instead of a ?subject,? and (3) has teaching aids that are built into the game. This product is an imaginative idea because the teaching approach leapfrogs flaws in traditional geometry instruction by gamifying the learning experience. http://preloaded.com/games/crafty-cut

Aerial selfy camera
The new Hover Camera Passport is a drone built specifically for taking selfies and follow footage. It folds up so is portable- it?s built to fit inside a backpack or purse, so is always with you, whenever you need it. It shoots video and stills and has a built-in flash. It also has image recognition software, which allows it to not only sense/track faces and bodies, but also maintain its position in space without the aid of GPS. http://www.digitaltrends.com/drone-reviews/hover-camera-passport-review/

Girl faces charging bull
On International Women's Day 2017 State Street Global Advisors issued a strong statement about gender equality and installed a statue of a little girl, fists on hips, in front of the famous charging bull of Wall Street. The money manager, with roughly $2.5 trillion under management, announced it would pressure 3,500 companies worth $30 trillion in market cap to aim for gender parity on their boards. http://fortune.com/2017/03/08/international-womens-day-girl-wall-street-bull/

Fairy parties
Just saw this lovely young woman promoting fairy parties at our local shopping centre. Inspiring promise: "Our magical characters fly to a venue of your choice for non-stop fairy wishes" ! I took my daughter to fairy parties when she was little but have never seen them promoted as well as this. www.fairywishes.com.au
