Mine of inspiration

April 2001

Two grade-eight students from Ontario were sufficiently inspired by our issue on Landmines (NI 294) that the’ve put together an award-winning multimedia CD.

Citing our issue on Landmines (NI 294) as inspiration, Scott Cressman and Kyle Ruttan, two grade-eight students from Kitchener, Ontario, have designed an award-winning multimedia CD which they hope will raise awareness of the problem. Using snippets of film, interviews and an interactive game, the CD provides clear information on the types of mines, where they are and what they do, alongside the problems facing deminers and survivors. Schools can order a copy from http://landmines.cjb.net>.
