Today a new group of tinkerers came together for a new after school session. Some veterans returned and a lot of brand new faces!
After Max showed us how his rubberband powered plane flies, we got to know each other, talked about ways we can treat ourselves, others, and the space to make our tinkering experience great, and got right to tool training! While we practiced the safest way to use the tools we also worked on the tinkering school goals.
We learned how to line up a cut.
We practiced checking ourselves, our friends, and our environment for safety.
WE CUT PIECES OF WOOD IN HALF WITH A CHOPSAW!!!!!!!!!
We collaborated with each other.
And we learned from our mistakes.
We started building a new community of tinkerers and next week we'll be putting our heads together to design the project!!
