Special Content: Repraps for Education

This is part of a series of posts about starting and facilitating a project-based 3D printer club at a local elementary school, with the ultimate goal of replicating the program at schools everywhere. We'll be posting as many details as possible, including lesson plans and supporting materials. For more information about the entire project, including a listing of posts related to it, please visit the 3D Printer Club for Schools project page.

This is part of a collection of Ernie's "Big Mike" recipes from the late 1980's and early 1990's. Big Mike was a pet cockroach who apparently tested all the food. The recipes ended with Big Mike's unfortunate disappearance, though he was thought to have grown so fat he was no longer able to come out from the wall.
