Students should not be looked upon as raw materials.

Definitions of the term 'Raw Materials'.

The basic material from which a product is made.

Material before being processed or manufactured into a final form.

Source: ( for the definition directly above. I am not sure where the first definition originates from. )

Did you like the photo of the plastic bottles in an assembly line? I do not want to have assembly line students, teachers and researchers at DIY-U. At DIY-U we think way outside the box.

When you read the definition for raw materials, given by, it could be quite accurate in some respects. The students start out a fresh level and once they have completed their course they are at a higher level - sorry for stating the obvious. It's a bit cold to think of students as raw materials. That's just my opinion anyhow. In future posts I will write about the factory model of schools and schooling in general.

My new logos for DIY U.

  I have 2 new wording logos created for DIY U. I can provide you with the contact info for the designer of the logo, if you're interested in getting logos made. You can contact me via the contact page in this blog. The designer is creative for sure. I didn't ask him to place the wrench symbol as the letter i. He came up with this idea by himself. The logo tells people in a nutshell what DIY U is all about : Do it yourself education and research.
