Why This MIT Dropout Started an Anti-College

Disenchanted with the out-of-date curriculum of traditional college, Jeremy Rossmann dropped out of MIT. Within a few years, he and co-founder Ashu Desai, started The Make School, a college replacement program for founders and developers.

“Our core philosophy is if you teach the same thing two years in a row, it’s got to be wrong because computer science as a field and software engineering as a discipline is moving so fast,” said Rossmann.

Instead of tests, there’s project-based work. Instead of tuition upfront, there’s a debt-free model charged to students only once they find employment after graduation. The Make School also claims to bring its students better access to top tech company functions, networking, and guidance as they shape their career.

Classes focus on developing desirable qualities and capabilities as expressed by current hiring managers in Silicon Valley. Beyond programming classes, subjects also include nutrition, health, writing, and exercise – tools to succeed in a professional life.

“And then some more general life skills, communication, empathy, understanding the history of tech and then a big segment on ethics. So Uber, what do we think? Airbnb, where do we stand? Is it okay to start a company in that way? Is it beneficial for society? Are the laws out of date? How does this all work behind the scenes?” Rossmann continued.

In September 2015, The Make School began its first academic year with nearly 30 full-time students in the founding class. Some students are fresh out of high school, some have left their colleges to pursue education here instead. They all live together in dorm-like housing in San Francisco, and though they may also be carrying fake IDs, it’s not to sneak into bars for fun like their university-counterparts. It’s usually to be able to hear a tech company founder speak at a networking event, or meet other contacts in the industry for a job.

Not everyone is on board with the new program, including some parents, who prefer their children still attend traditional, name-recognized universities. To which Rossmann responds, “When LinkedIn and Lyft and these companies with tens of millions of dollars of funding are all committing contractually to coming and recruit here, and they don’t come to the school where your child is studying, that means something.”

How to Cook Sweet Potatoes

The humble sweet potato is packed with nutrition; is simple to bake in an oven, microwave, or cook on a grill; and can be seasoned with a variety of your favorite toppings as well as paired with other vegetables.

Step 1: Select potatoes
Select fresh, firm, smooth, and plump sweet potatoes and wash them as you would other vegetables.

Cook sweet potatoes whole to benefit from nutrients found next to the skin.

Step 2: Pierce
Pierce your dry sweet potatoes a few times with a fork before baking or microwaving.

Step 3: Place on pan and bake
Place the sweet potatoes on a rimmed pan and bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes or until they are tender.

Step 4: Quick-cook
Quick-cook sweet potatoes by placing two clean, pierced potatoes in a microwave oven for five to nine minutes, or four sweet potatoes for 10 to 13 minutes.

Sweet potatoes rank high among the healthiest of vegetables, providing vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber.

Step 5: Grill
Grill sweet potatoes by first boiling them, letting them cool, and then slicing them lengthwise into eighths, oiling the slices, and grilling all sides until they’re golden brown.

Step 6: Slit and top your sweet potatoes
Slit your sweet potatoes and top them with sour cream, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, maple syrup, applesauce, pecans, or anything else that tickles your taste buds to make a delightful dining experience.

Did You Know?
Christopher Columbus found sweet potatoes growing on islands in the West Indies and brought the vegetable plant to Spain in the early 1500s, where it was cultivated.

How to Paint a Mural with a Projector

Ready to think outside the canvas? A wall is a masterpiece waiting to happen when you follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Make copies
Make two copies of the image you’ve selected for the mural: one in color, and one black and white. Then use the black and white copy to make a copy on to a transparency.

Step 2: Position the image
Put the projector on a tray or table a few feet from, and facing the wall; then plug it in. Place the transparency on the projector and turn it on. Position the projector so the image is the right size and in the right place on the wall.

Make sure the projector is directly facing the wall. If it’s at an angle it will distort the image.

Step 3: Trace the image
Trace the image on the wall using a pencil, correcting mistakes with the eraser.

Step 4: Lay the drop cloth
Lay a drop cloth in front of the wall to protect the floor from paint.

Step 5: Mix and paint
Using the color copy as a reference, select a color to apply first. Pour the paint into a cup, or on to a plate and use a paintbrush to apply it to the wall everywhere the color appears. Rinse and dry the brush after use.

Step 6: Fill in and outline
Move on to other colors until the mural is completely filled in. If necessary, wait until it’s dry; then outline sections of the painting with a fine-tip brush dipped in black paint. Voila! A masterpiece!

Did You Know?
Did you know? In the 1930s, the WPA Federal Art Project, established to employ artists during the Great Depression, was responsible for 2,566 murals across the United States.
