What’s good: Teaching Rutgers students to make balloon animals

My class shows off their prize balloons.

Today was the last day this semester for the multimedia reporting class I teach at Rutgers. The first day of class I promise the students they will learn a sure-fire way to make money. In these times in the journalism professional, that makes them take notice. So today I broke out the long balloons and showed them how to make animals.

They thought it was pretty cool, except for Christina. It turns out Christina is a balloon tying expert, works for Disney as Snow White and makes big bucks getting dressed up and twisting balloons for kids parties. She is good. She taught me a few new designs. It was a fun end to the class.
