Our second session is dedicated to revealing our group project, capturing ideas and designing a master plan. Tuesday's group project and challenge to build something that will transport a bowling ball from one side of the shop to the other without touching it. We had a lot of great ideas come out our of our design phase ranging from pulling a wagon to constructing a roller coaster.
When sharing our ideas we noticed that most of the kids described the need for some sort of track. So we broke into smaller groups to tackle making a prototype.
After the design was complete it was time to start construction. It was great to see the kids organically break into two groups. Some went into the chop saw room to prepare cuts while others began affixing all the pieces together.
