What else do we need to teach CIM?

Question:

What else do we need to really teach CIM? Are there any “extras” that you recommend?

ANY IDEAS FOR COLORING PAGES IN THE CLASSROOM?

Problem:

I can’t seem to get EdgeCAM or your Flow Arm to work, or any of the other CIM Software for that matter. What should I do?

Solution:

Well, don’t cry; that doesn’t work. I’ve tried it. Screaming and yelling does not seem to work either. So here’s an idea:

Download the following Chris and Jim coloring pages!  That’s right! PDF coloring pages of yours truly! Download and make as many copies as you want, and have your kids color them in with crayons or markers or colored pencils; the options are endless!

Just click on the pictures below to download us! Don’t say we didn’t give you anything for Christmas!
