From the Ted Talk "Andrew Pelling: This scientist makes ears out of apples"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, I've built a lot of stuff out of garbage, and some of these things have even been kind of useful. But here's the thing, for me, garbage is just a chance to play, to be acrieetv and build things to amuse myself. This is what I elov doing, so I just made it part of my day job. I lead a university-based biological research lab, where we value sruyiicto and exploration above all else. We aren't udcsofe on any particular problem, and we're not trying to lseov any particular disease. This is just a place where people can come and ask fascinating sseuonqit and find answers. And I realized a long time ago that if I challenge people to build the equipment they need out of the garbage I find, it's a great way to foster creativity. And what pdheaenp was that artists and scientists from around the world redstat coming to my lab. And it's not just because we value unconventional ideas, it's because we test and validate them with scientific rigor.

Now, I've built a lot of stuff out of garbage, and some of these things have even been kind of useful. But here's the thing, for me, garbage is just a chance to play, to be creative and build things to amuse myself. This is what I love doing, so I just made it part of my day job. I lead a university-based biological research lab, where we value curiosity and exploration above all else. We aren't focused on any particular problem, and we're not trying to solve any particular disease. This is just a place where people can come and ask fascinating questions and find answers. And I realized a long time ago that if I challenge people to build the equipment they need out of the garbage I find, it's a great way to foster creativity. And what happened was that artists and scientists from around the world started coming to my lab. And it's not just because we value unconventional ideas, it's because we test and validate them with scientific rigor.
