Elon & Infographics

Elon Musk is a business magnate, engineer and inventor. He is the founder, CEO and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors.  His daring dream of rocket recycling and reusability is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality. On July 28th, 2016, SpaceX engineers  successfully conducted a full duration engine test firing of a 156-foot-tall rocket. Click here to read the full article on SpaceX.

Elon Musk is an absolute inspiration. I am fascinated with him and the way in which he approaches the world. He does things that others say he cannot. He challenges the status quo and finds solutions to problems that no one else even contemplates tackling. My “Elon Admiration” only intensified when my school leader (principal), Casey, introduced our back to school professional development with discussing Elon Musk and SpaceX. Follow up Reading: Current News on Tesla.

I think the infographic below accurately depicts Elon Musk’s life, but also marries the goal and purpose of my blog which is to incorporate technology effectively. An infographic is a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data. Infographics are everywhere these days because our brain craves these visuals.  Merging words with graphics helps imprint the information on our brain. Students can create their own infographics too using sites like Infogr.amPiktochart, or Venngage
