Devin's passion right now is anything and everything Steampunk! He learned about this subculture while in Las Vegas and has jumped completely into it since returning home. He loves Steampunk fashion and has been sewing and creating his own clothes. He modifies existing items to make them new and "UpCycles" things he finds from thrift stores and the dump.

Devin has learned so much from his interest in Steampunk! From science, to history to fashion to music to craftsmanship... he has grown and has becoming interested in so much since delving into the subculture. Nurturing his passion by attending the Steampunk World's Fair this May is one way in which I am facilitating his individualized education and personal path in life.

Devin also started a Steampunk Blog!

That's so cool! I don't know what his reading level is, but he might like the steampunk trilogy by Scott Westerfeld. They're pretty thick books, but they have great illustrations. The first book is Leviathan. :)

That is so great that he does so much himself...sewing and such.

Anita, Yes! He loves to sew. He actually has a sewing machine in his room and requests fabric whenever I go to the store. Thanks for commenting!

I've been hearing so much about steampunk lately. Thanks, Devin, for the reminder that I need to go ahead and look up some resources to figure out what it's all about. :)
