TED Talk by William Kamkwamba: How I harnessed the windhqdefault

At age 14, in poverty and famine, a Malawian boy built a windmill to power his family’s home. Now at 22, William Kamkwamba, who speaks at TED, here, for the second time, shares in his own words the moving tale of invention that changed his life.

Class Activity:  Finish Inkscape-1 & Start Inkscape-2

What? another Inkscape assignment?  Yes.  Here’s what you will do:

1- Look at this page on Wikimedia Commons showing Tangrams created using Inkscape.

2- Open a new Inkscape Document and make your canvas large enough for 2 Tangrams side by side.  Make your own Tangram showing 2  different designs using the same shapes. Kind of like Nevit does here:
Tangram_001_NevitTangram_067_Nevit

3. Save your Inkscape-2 project in your assignment folder on Drive.  (50 Points – Due Tuesday 4/18)
