From imagination to reality...

Science fiction writers have long imagined fantastic cities of the future, complete with flying cars and electronic wonders of all kinds. Today those wonders are one step, or less, closer to reality. This is the amazing story of how together and at great risk, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists like Steve Jobs and Mike Markkula (Apple Computer), Sandy Lerner, Len Bosack, and Don Valentine (Cisco Systems) created the building blocks of our future.

I used this as a tool to think about futuristic ideas. We are reading I was a Sixth Grade Alien by Bruce Coville, and this was a multidisciplinary tie to economics.

Incorporating current information on Apple and Cisco does help students to relate to the topic area .... and that can often be the hardest element in teaching this kind of material.
