Join us today, Monday 16th June at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for a viewing party of our latest episode as we visit the waters of Fanci’s Deep – above … but mostly below the waterline.

And for one of our audience, there’s a chance to win a fantastic prize!

Fanci’s Deep is an incredible region of pirates and mermaids – and this time we are exploring the underwater regions of the mer. We’ll be meeting Grace Wrigglesworth of the Safe Waters Foundation, an organisation dedicated to supporting mermaids and mermen in Second Life – and introducing newcomers to their amazing underwater world. Saffia explores an underwater tour of mainland seas and finds some fascinating evidence of a lost civilisation, while Elrik discovers the joys of underwater chariot racing!

We also talk to Nber Medici and MarkTwain White about the background to Fanci’s Deep, and how the underwater world was created in memory of the late Fanci Beebe, formerly owner of the Sailors’ Cove estate, who loved mers so well.

And Nber and Mark are offering a fantastic prize - a month’s FREE rent to a mer parcel in Fanci’s Deep – for you to experience this wonderful environment for yourself!

It won’t cost you anything to furnish it either – many of the designs in Fanci’s Deep are the work of the wonderful Aley who has a range of mer homes and furniture available at AleyMart on the marketplace.

Join us at 2pm for a prizewinnng, fun and spectacular show – make sure that you don’t miss it!

The podcar tour is definitely one of the highlights of the SL11B Community Celebration. But YOU need to make sure that it has all the right details. The MadMan explains.

Don’t miss the recent Designing Worlds show exploring three fascinating educational projects, created by two Finnish designers, which demonstrate that Second Life can be used for education on a variety of levels.

Case Dirval and Yolanda Hirvi are the designers behind Metaverstas (in English here), and they take us through three fascinating projects – firstly a virtual microbrewery created for a technical college, then a series of biochemistry laboratories created for Finland’s largest university, and finally a history project created to teach high school students about the Winter War, when Finland was attacked by the USSR in 1939.

The projects demonstrates how Second Life can be used to replicate processes which would – if based in the real world – would be hugely time consuming and costly. They also offer the opportunity for students to learn associated tasks such as laboratory safety and security without needing to utilise real facilities. And they also offer the opportunity to study exactly how students learn.
