We once again came back to the Olympic village. I really like this place because of the amount of greenery surrounding the area and the benches that are spread around that lets you to just sit down and become mesmerized with the scenery. Today we met with the developers and planners of the Olympic village, Tina and Debrah with special guests Deland and Michael. From what we had learned from Tina and Debrah, the development of many condos around the surrounding area is a conflict that disables the park from expanding a bit more and that people really enjoy being near the seawall and I could understand why. We walked around the village’s premises and talked about the area surrounding it that is currently under development that focuses on expanding the Olympic village. We learned about the history and background development plans of the Olympic village and why certain locations are there.
After the tour we headed over for lunch at one of our youth leader’s uncle’s restaurant at Chinatown. After the lunch we headed over to Makers Lab to construct PRAS otherwise known as Project Related to Augmented Simulation (Name is destined to change overtime.). It’s a box that unfolds into a map where we could make our own scenarios and test children and kids that we present using PRAS as a presentation material. I didn’t expect it would take the whole time to make a box with hinges attached to it but I guess that’s just the influence of a city boy where everything is premade and we had to make PRAS from a scratch. At makers lab, I was able to witness the future coming in steadily with a laser printer. There was a 3D printer but a laser printer is more interesting. All of us had fun making the box and the pieces for it. We also made thank you cut outs for the people we met and had donated to make this trip possible. A huge shout out to those who did! Well this concludes out 6th day in our Vancouver trip, Thanks for reading!
