come make amazing things with us

From "How do we do that?" to "Do that."

Vend It! (Spring 2015)Amanda SimonsComment

The Friday After School vending machine designers have completed most of the hard, hard, problem solving work. We've prototyped different vending mechanism, did and re-did components, and talked a lot about how we might do things, rather than actually doing things that would become usable components later.

This week, however, we had a shift.

I stopped asking, "So, how would we do that?"

Now I'm just saying, "Okay, let's do that!"

With confidence and comfort in full swing, the Tinkerers took a lot of time to identify and solve problems with our design. 

They worked as a team to complete tasks quickly. 

They also solved a lot of design challenges, and are slowly transforming this skeleton of a vending machine into something that we can actually USE in two weeks!
