What’s Wrong With This Picture?

I’m still compiling my notes from a very strange and very cool CMC-North. Until then, consider this graphic, ripped from children’s television by Bill Farren as a visual assessment for engineering students:

I have underrated the assessment question, “what’s wrong here?” I need to do more of that. It isn’t that tricky, though it is tricky to deliver that assessment visually, as Bill has done here. It’s trickier still to rip that visual from a kid’s show, packaging the whole assessment in the sort of scientific put-down of children’s entertainment that appeals directly to the inner misanthrope I keep loosely tethered on a fraying leash.

Comments are closed here. Tell Bill what’s wrong over there.
