wow thats a lovely idea! shame i couldn't do something like that today, if not just to blag our very generous head of department into buying me one!!!malcymal wrote:Many moons ago whilst working at a teacher training college I went out to a school whereby they had a Mills Hi Top with numbers on the first and third real and in the middle plus, minus, divide and multiply. They had it on free play and the kids would pull the handle then work out the sums. You wouldnt get away with such a thing to day due to 'ethics' and the question of introducing gambling to kids. Therefore, vending machine is a different kettle of fish altogether so you will get away with it (i work in schools now). I think its a super idea. If the machine has gambling overtones, then you might run into trouble; there is always one jumped up parent or governor who can find something against some sort of policy or law.
Did you ever buy a vending machine for your uni project, i cant remember if you did or didnt?!?!?!?
really glad you like the idea, just thought it'd be good for our 'mini artists' to produce 'mini works' to go into our 'mini vending gallery'. the staff seem very pleased with the idea, i'm on photoshop as we speak coming up with some designs for the panels for the front of the gum card vending machine i bought for my degree show!!! x
