What kids love

by | Dec 14, 2018 | kids, Olympia | 7 comments

A couple of years ago, I set up an Olympia SG3 in Xavier’s faculty lounge.

People started using it for random bits of poetry, comments, and such. But recently, it’s seen little use.

I suggested to a librarian that it might go well in the little makerspace that is located on the ground floor of our library. I checked in recently and saw that, in fact, some people had typed long sheets of stories and nonsense on the machine. And my librarian friend sent me a photo that reinforces a widely recognized truth:

    It's great to see the children enjoying the SG3.

    Dat's de troof! Gotta say anytime you bring a typewriter around where there's youngsters, they get drawn in like moths to a porchlight. it's a winning combination (:

    Sorry – couple of typos. Here is the post:: I had same thing with kids enjoying themselves when I took my machines on an outing to a local Xmas Fayre in London…. probably first time they'd ever used one. It takes them a while to get used to pushing the letters onto the page instead of just touching. Am I allowed to post a facebook link? Here goes: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1070052266350725/

    Hace 35 años, una SG3 me ató a la Máquina de Escribir. Magnífico!
