Retro tutorial – Week 6
- One of our Educators (Robin Ford) said “I’m excited by this stuff and hope you are too”. His reasons? “Power liberates us. Once you understand how it works you can harness it to do your will, whether it’s an ancient water wheel or a steam turbine, a bicycle rider or a V8 engine, a Diesel generator or roof-top solar panels, an electric motor in a toy car or a wheel motor in a real one..” What do you make of his excitement?
