Today we welcomed our final Human Library guest of the year – Jeremy McKay, a.k.a. Mr. Yoyo Thrower! Nary a teacher can walk down the hall at St. George’s without risking a minor concussion: yo-yos are far and away the biggest fad this year. While some teachers might consider them an annoyance or health hazard, it’s hard to deny the benefits of learning tricks: physics, hand-eye coordination, concentration and practice. Jeremy, whose day job is a Grade 2 teacher, leads the Vancouver Yo-yo club and has competed at the national and international levels!
Jeremy met with groups of avid yo-yoers and explained the different types of yo-yos, and taught a few tricks. It was a really fun afternoon!
