Material Detail



This video was recorded at OCWC Global Conference, Ljubljana 2014. Oskar is an eight year old boy with a mission: to build a machine to find and dig up treasures in his garden. Because, so he wonders, what if an ancient Roman treasure is hidden under the grass? Just think about it, what if he and his family moved away and they hadn't searched for the treasure? What if another family moved in who immediately would find the treasure? Wouldn't that be awful? So Oskar invented a "Look-For-Treasures-And-Dig-Them-Up-Machine". He thought about what the machine should be able to do, and made a beautiful drawing showing how it would look like. He even wrote a user manual. And now he wants his machine to be built as well. But how? His father is all thumbs (at least that's what his mother always says.). So what can he do?
